About Us

The South Bay Chamber Music Society is a nonprofit corporation founded in 1963 by renowned violinist Ruth Breytspraak to promote the appreciation of great music in the South Bay. Our aim is to present the highest quality chamber music performances featuring the finest musicians in Southern California.

For the major part of our funding, we rely on the generous donations of individuals. As our organization is run entirely by volunteers, the majority of proceeds go to support the musicians’ honorariums. If you would like to contribute, please click here.

The concerts are also made possible in part by the City of Los Angeles Cultural Affairs Department, by the County of Los Angeles Arts Commission, by the Colburn Foundation, and by the City of Rolling Hills. Our corporate sponsors include Boeing and the Williams Companies, Inc.
