Below I have included a few highlights from their upcoming winter season, but the full schedule can be seen online at http://www.baychamberconcerts.org/. Tickets for all events are available online or we would be happy to make any arrangements for you. Whether you would like to add a concert to an upcoming visit to Camden, or you want to plan a trip to the Hartstone Inn to enjoy an upcoming concert, it would be our pleasure to assist you.
