“I’m glad we have this quality of music here close by, instead of having to fight the traffic going into Philadelphia.”
World-Class Chamber Music in a Welcoming Environment, Right Here in Southern New Jersey
The West Jersey Chamber Music Society has been bringing affordable, classical music performances to audiences in Southern New Jersey for 40 years. Our professional musicians – orchestra and choir – bring their amazing skills and sense of style to the works of leading composers from the U.S. and Europe.
We offer special perks for Season ticket holders, and children are always welcome to attend free of charge.

Our Artistic Director
The commitment to these high standards in music begins with Artistic Director Joel Krott. A graduate of the Philadelphia Music Academy, Mr. Krott has studied and traveled throughout Europe, including extensive musical research with renowned masters from the Royal Conservatory of Copenhagen and the Vienna Conservatory. He has expertly and graciously guided the West Jersey Chamber Music Society ensemble from its inception in 1980, creating 38 seasons of music that challenge and inspire both supporters and musicians.
