The Neumark EnsembleSM (pronounced noi´märk) is a chamber music society whose mission is to bring live chamber music to the broadest possible audience in Southern California. In its selection of venues, programs, collateral materials and supporting activities, The Neumark Ensemble personalizes the relationship with its audience.

Led by Music Director Stephen Tucker, The Neumark Ensemble has brought chamber orchestra concerts to Inland Empire audiences since 1993. In addition to orchestral concerts, the ensemble presents Classical Preserves—a classical jam session in which the audience is invited to play along—and the Neumark Ensemble Chorale, the group's choral arm.

The organization's Neumark Outreach Training and Enrichment SystemSM (N.O.T.E.S.SM) brings chamber music to elementary school children. The three-year N.O.T.E.S. curriculum exposes students to the orchestra's sections, a wide variety of instruments and in-class instruction in music making.

The Neumark Ensemble also offers for hire at private functions small ensembles of the professional musicians in the organization. Performers are selected based on the requirements of the event.

The Neumark Ensemble benefits the community through cultural enrichment and involvement. It depends on private donations from members of the community for its survival. All donations less benefits received are tax deductible to the fullest extent possible under IRS code section 501(c)(3).
