The Raleigh Chamber Music Guild is North Carolina’s oldest chamber music presenting organization. Since its founding in 1941, the Guild has presented most of the world’s greatest chamber artists, from one of the first concerts by the Juilliard String Quartet in 1949 to the last North Carolina performance by the Tokyo String Quartet before it disbanded in June of this year. RCMG presents the Masters Series, which features national and international ensembles, as well as Sights & Sounds on Sundays, which showcases NC-based musicians in programs which connect chamber music selections and works in the Museum’s permanent collection and touring exhibitions.
