The Friday Morning Music Club was founded in 1886 by 15 women who found performance opportunities in Washington DC lacking for women of their musical training and background. Today, FMMC honors that original purpose by providing a wide variety of performance opportunities to all our 500+ members, who range from enthusiasts to amateurs to professionals. In addition, we are dedicated to free access to classical music in the city, and all of our performances are presented free of charge. In a normal season, we offer approximately 100 concerts, both through our Chamber Series, Avanti Orchestra, Arioso Chorale, and Outreach Program. To learn more about us and what we do, as well as learn about membership (open to musicians and non-musicians alike!) visit our website at
FMMC is the parent organization of the Friday Morning Music Club Foundation, and all members of the Foundation Board of Trustees are drawn from FMMC membership.
