About Missouri Chamber Music

Our Mission

to bring the fine art of small ensemble playing to a broad audience through dynamic and accessible performances of the highest quality.

MOCM’s nationally recognized artists perform a series of chamber music concerts as part of the annual festival each June. Diverse programming, including new and commissioned works, is a defining attribute of the festival, helping to illuminate the exciting, extraordinary, and diverse nuance of the small ensemble genre.

More About Us

MOCM was founded by pianist Nina Ferrigno and clarinetist Scott Andrews of St. Louis.

The Missouri Chamber Music Festival is generously supported with grants from the Regional Arts Commission and the Missouri Arts Council and the generosity of businesses and individuals. Read more about the largely volunteer-powered MOCM team.

To highlight and encourage the accessibility, diversity, and excitement of small ensemble playing, the Missouri Chamber Music Festival also hosts an Adult Chamber Music Intensive (ACMI) each June. This program enables collaboration between adult instrumentalists and the nationally recognized musicians of MOCM in a workshop format emphasizing fun, mutual support, and encouragement in the common interest of chamber music.

The Missouri Chamber Music Festival is a 501(c)(3) not-for-profit public charity incorporated in the state of Missouri. The Board of Directors of MOCM works to celebrate a community that brings together musicians, an audience, enthusiastic staff, volunteers, and donors in a welcoming social environment. We aim to ensure the viability and health of the organization and continue to advance MOCM’s mission of accessible and dynamic performances of chamber music.

“MOCM is a generous and lovely gift to our community.”
