Due to the increase in the number of coronavirus cases in PA, we have made a difficult decision to postpone our 3/21 concert with the Polonsky-Shifrin-Wiley Trio. The health of our audience members, performers, volunteers and staff is our top priority. We are also considering “social distancing,” an organizational responsibility, and hope that it will help to slow the spread of the infection.


You may use your tickets for any of MSC’s future performances. You may also request a refund by emailing, or calling (717) 221-9599.


While we are making plans for an alternative date, here is a live performance of the delightfully uplifting Beethoven Piano Trio Op. 11 by the Polonsky-Shifrin-Wiley Trio - .


Since all of us will be spending significantly more time at home, we would like to offer you a weekly dose of great chamber music via email in hopes of alleviating some of the stress brought on by our current situation.


We thank you for your support and understanding, and we look forward to seeing you at our future performances!


Warm regards,


Peter and Ya-Ting
