World-class music in intimate settings

Celebrating music and showcasing CME’s young artists, this concert series rejuvenates instrumental music experiences in rural New Jersey. The beautiful homes of our hosts provide a glorious backdrop for performance, dining and conversation with the artists.

 

To date, CME has presented ten wildly successful Harding Homes events, thanks to the generosity of our wonderful hosts, each featuring a different program of our Young Artists and fantastic guest performers. To host your own event, contact us!
