Our Mission

Chamber Music PLUS (CMP) exists to entertain, inform and educate audiences of all ages through innovative and contemporary programming that melds multiple art forms, engages multiple intelligences and deepens individual and community cultural experience through high quality arts presentation and educational programming.


Chamber Music PLUS was launched as a civic arts society at The Old State House in Hartford, CT. Chamber Music PLUS was then, and it remains today, dedicated to the promotion of the intimate art form – chamber music.

Led by its founders, Harry Clark, cellist/playwright, and pianist Sanda Schuldmann, the organization  had homes in Tucson, AZ and Hartford, CT.

In the 2008-2009 Season, Chamber Music PLUS has closed its offices in Hartford, CT and has moved its headquarters to Tucson, AZ. With that move, the organization also gained a brilliant Managing Director in Gary Bacal.

Chamber Music PLUS was born and remains dedicated to be the resource for audiences that seek the unusual in the traditional form of chamber music.

Chamber Music PLUS continues to be passionate about producing original programs of the highest artistic quality, with a strong commitment to educating “kids” of all ages about the arts, through the arts.  Chamber Music PLUS also continues to bring focus to women artists and their contribution to the arts throughout the ages.


Chamber Music PLUS is the winner of the 2002 Governor’s Arts Award in CT, the 2005 LUMIE Tucson Pima Arts Council’s Award for Excellence in the Arts and received two nominations for the 2006 Governor’s Arts Award in AZ.
