Ridgecrest Chamber Music Society (RCMS) is a non-profit organization located in Ridgecrest, California in the Indian Wells Valley, 155 miles NE of Los Angeles. Our mission is to promote education and awareness of the genre of chamber music and provide opportunities for community members to experience this music in our small desert city. RCMS brings excellent, top rate, professional classical music groups to Ridgecrest for four  to six concerts per season.  The 2016-2017 season will have seven concerts.

Please note: the Annual RCMS Meeting is May 10, 2017 at Maturango Museum at 7 PM.

As a non-profit organization in Ridgecrest, RCMS is a partner with The United Way and Combined Federal Campaign as well with the Kern Community Foundation and their Kern Arts Now! Click here to view a Kern Community Foundation video about the RCMS.

"Give Big Kern" is going on now through May 2, 2017, an online giving opportunity for non-profit organizations in Kern County.

RCMS is delighted to have the continuing sponsorship of the Pizza Factory.  This support will be a great help to our work to bring world-class chamber music to the community. Pizza Factory periodically has dates where they will donate 30% of their procedes to RCMS.

If you shop at Amazon, they have a program called “AmazonSmile”.  For most things you buy at Amazon, they will donate .5% of the price to Ridgecrest Chamber Music Society. Click here for more information.
