As an organization bringing art to the people of our beloved Magic City we always strive to break barriers and find that cutting edge where chamber music becomes accessible. We love to collaborate with other arts organizations and we love hearing back from our audience. We've been here for over 17 years and continue to grow and develop. We want you to come play with us - as volunteers, donors, general public, contributors (other organizations, performers, anything that creates an intra-disciplinary experience for our audience) and this is our mission: to bring the joy and beauty of music in all its forms into your life.

The SBCE plays carefully selected culturally inspiring classics from both the masters and from lesser known up and coming composers from all over the world. As a board member for over 10 years I have seen the transformation of the audiences, from older seasoned lovers of classical music to now include the young hipper set. Michael Andrews, the musical director always provides an exciting story on the origin of the music being played that expands the audience's appreciation of the magic of the music.

South Beach Chamber Ensemble is everything a music ensemble should be:
1- Artistically proficient in classical music. They play challenging Beethoven late quartets and Bach with equal sensitivity and brio.
2- Not afraid to take chances. They were one of the first ensembles to do a pop-up music event, which can be seen on You-tube... I was so proud when a friend in London sent it to me without her knowing that it had taken place in Miami.
3- Forging forward with new music. I had never sat before at a performance which was the premiere of a musical composition, which was exciting to experience, to see World Premiere on the program.
4- Searching for new audiences and ways to approach them. SBCE partnered with pupeteers to create a new work called Mozart Meets Lady Gaga, performed for an audience of all ages at a high school, with sets done by the students at the school.
5- Bridging communities. SBCE plays in South Florida most of the year, and in the summer they play in Wisconsin. They have also played elsewhere in North and South America.
