The Boston Clavichord Society is a nonprofit organization dedicated to the promotion of the clavichord and its music. The society sponsors concerts, masterclasses, lectures/demonstrations, and other clavichord-related events. Although these events are primarily local, we serve a much wider audience in the United States and elsewhere through our bulletin and website. Links to other clavichord societies throughout the world are included on the website.
