COVID-19 Resources for the Chamber Music Community

On March 11, the World Health Organization declared the Coronavirus (COVID-19) a pandemic. Since then, dramatic measures have been taken, which involve widespread performance cancellations, venue and office closings, and strict social distancing guidelines.

Following is a list of information resources to help our community of artists, presenters, managers, educators, and others keep up-to-date regarding health and safety concerns as well as emergency relief opportunities.


Check back regularly as we learn of and post additional resources.

CMA Actions


CMA is offering its constituents one-year Pay-What-You-Can memberships in response to the COVID-19 crisis. This policy will be in effect until March 31, 2021, at which time we will again review the economic situation.


CMA has also published the results of its second survey (completed June 5) on the impact of COVID-19 on the chamber music field. The results provide an updated snapshot of the field and includes comparisons with selected data from the first survey in March.


Survey results have been published in partnership with the Wallace Foundation’s "Building Audiences for the Arts" initiative.
