Each season, NCCMI presents three concerts featuring faculty members. Each concert is curated by an NCCMI artist-teacher and features a mixture of traditional and other styles of chamber music. Concerts take place at Meredith College and Church of the Nativity in Raleigh.

All concerts are free and open to the general public. Donations to support NCCMI and this series are gratefully accepted.
