Bedford Chamber Concerts (BCC) has been presenting high quality, Chamber offerings to enthusiastic
and appreciative audiences since its inaugural 2000/2001 Season. Its initial three concert schedule
has grown to six annual concerts plus a lecture/performance series.
Launched through the efforts of the all-volunteer Music Committee of St. Matthews Episcopal Church
in Bedford, the BCC has drawn on the talents and resources of renowned musician, conductor and
composer Anthony Newman who serves as Music Director for the BCC as well as for St. Matthews and
Bach Works in New York City. Mr. Newman is an internationally recognized musician who has been at
the forefront of baroque music for more than 35 years and who is best known as an organist, a
harpsichordist and for his interpretations of Bach. He has been called the "high priest of the
harpsichord" by Wynton Marsalis and the "high priest of Bach" by Time Magazine.
Originally performing for music lovers from St. Matthew's community, the BCC audience has
expanded throughout Westchester and into Connecticut.
One of the keys to the series' success has been the presentation of top-quality performers in a space
perfectly suited to chamber music. Mr. Newman has drawn on his many years in the industry to
attract the finest national and international musicians to the series. The 2014/15 season continues to
highlight international musicians, presenting chamber orchestra Il Giardino d'Amore in the season's
inaugural concert and Russian born pianist Vladimir Feltsman in what will certainly be a memorable
The series is presented Wednesday evenings in the beautiful, intimate and acoustically superior
Fellowship Hall of St. Matthews Episcopal Church in Bedford. Ticket prices range from $35-$40.
Student tickets are available at the door for $10.
