Concert Sponsor: Anna and Leslie Dan

In normal times we strive to include as much collegial chamber music making as possible - we love the collaborative process, the musical conversations that arise, the shared laughter and tears. And so do you!

Together with YOU, this season is our opportunity to get to know one another better:

  • We will have fewer artists on stage. That means you will hear each of them better and see each of them more clearly.

  • Fewer audience members in the hall means that we will see you more clearly and we will play and sing for each of you in a way that is perhaps more intimate.

You'll lean in. We'll lean in.

This is our challenge for the season: we are all being asked to be more actively engaged in the concert experience than ever before. After our long hiatus we can’t wait for this kind of interaction.
