Tryon Concert Association will present Front Row: National, a series of six concerts performed by members of the Chamber Music Society of Lincoln Center this fall, winter and early spring. TCA has canceled its regular subscription series and TGIF concerts due to the Covid-19 but continues to bring world class music to the Tryon area for its 66th season.

The Chamber Music Society of Lincoln Center has made available recordings of a series of recent concerts. Fall presentations will be available, free of charge, on the TCA website,, from Wednesday through Sunday during the last weeks of September, October and November. In February, March and April, another series of programs will take place. Billed as “the greatest canceled season ever” by TCA president Kymric Mahnke, the concerts showcase the excellence of the famed Chamber Music Society.

In September, pianist Anne-Marie McDermott and accompanying musicians will start the program with Mozart’s Concerto in D minor for Piano, Flute and Strings, K. 466. Smetana’s Trio in G minor for Piano, Violin and Cello follows.
