Formed in 2010, the St. Albert Chamber Music Society (SACMS) is a not-for-profit organization that promotes greater knowledge and appreciation of chamber music through live performances. 


SACMS is committed to:

  • expanding our reach through partnerships and collaborations that bring the highest caliber of chamber music to St. Albert;

  • educating the public about the importance of chamber music and classical music;

  • providing opportunities for seasoned classical musicians to tap into new audiences and showcase their talents and skills;

  • supporting emerging artists through educational and performance experiences, and

  • enhancing the overall quality of life in St. Albert. 


As such, five concerts are held each season with highly accomplished chamber musicians and emerging artists.

Many members of the respected Edmonton Symphony Orchestra have performed, as well as other accomplished musicians such as Juno Award nominee, Antonio Peruch, and Grammy Award nominees, Yue Deng, Jasmine Lin and Marina Hoover.


Through partnership with the Banff Centre for Arts and Creativity, SACMS has had the pleasure of sharing Banff International String Quartet Competition winners, the Dover Quartet and the Rolston String Quartet, with local audiences.

The St. Albert Chamber Music Society respectfully acknowledges that we creatively operate on sacred, traditional lands in Treaty Six Territory, a site where music and community have been shared for at least 11,000 years – 500 generations. We honour and recognize the rich artistic, cultural, and musical traditions of the Cree, Nakota Sioux, Metis, Dene, Saulteaux, and the many more Indigenous communities that call this land we share, home.
