The Bay Area Music Consortium (BAMC) is a visionary partnership between four distinct organizations dedicated to presenting the finest in chamber music experiences: Berkeley Chamber Performances, Gold Coast Chamber Players (Lafayette), Mill Valley Chamber Music Society, and Noe Valley Chamber Music (San Francisco). With the synergy of combined resources, collective planning and a shared artistic vision, the Bay Area Music Consortium is able to present outstanding ensembles performing uniquely designed programs that enrich each of the individual member communities. BAMC was conceived and instigated by Gold Coast Chamber Players’ Artistic Director, Pamela Freund-Striplen.
BAMC chose the St. Lawrence String Quartet (SLSQ) as the first ensemble to be presented by the consortium in 2019. Now in its second year, BAMC presents the Grammy-nominated Aizuri Quartet performing a unique program, Songs and Echoes of Home from March 1-8, 2020. BAMC continues in April 2021 with the Miro Quartet.
