Doansburg musicians perform throughout the year in venues all around the world, in addition to the summer series scheduled by the Doansburg Chamber Ensemble. Many have performed at the Saratoga Performing Arts Center, Lincoln Center and Carnegie Hall. It is not uncommon to find a number of the musicians on tour throughout the year.

Our performances are attended by residents of Carmel, Mahopac, Brewster, Ridgefield, Poughkeepsie, Cold Spring, Danbury and a number of other communities.
Critics have described the Ensemble as deserving credit for providing intelligent, upbeat performances of high quality. The collaboration of well-matched musicians and imaginative programming was noted to have brought vitality, energy and artistry to the music. (Francis Brancaleone, Gannett Suburban Newspapers)
