InterMusic SF is a San Francisco Bay Area non-profit organization that advocates for those who create, share, and love the art of small ensemble music. InterMusic SF acts as a catalyst to help local artists thrive via career development and creative collaboration.
Built to Help
In 1998, three longtime San Francisco Bay Area music patrons, Jane Roos Le Roux, Jane Galante and Barbara Barclay, recognized that while chamber music ensembles contribute significantly to the cultural life of the Bay Area, they generally lack the tools and staffing for audience development; and because most are not tax-exempt entities, they are rarely in the position to garner the contributed support that organizations in other disciplines receive.
The founders saw a distinct need for a local service organization to support this art form in the Bay Area, and launched the San Francisco Friends of Chamber Music (SFFCM). The organization has grown significantly in ambition and impact since its founding, garnering national recognition in 2010 with Chamber Music America’s prestigious CMAcclaim Award for extraordinary contributions in the field of chamber music.
In 2017, we adopted the name InterMusic SF in order to ensure that our identity would better reflect the stylistic and demographic breadth of the community we have steadily evolved to serve.
