Dates and Programs Subject to Change


I confess to not being compelled by Baroque and/or chamber music. Then, part way through a birthing yawn I tuned in to the flute and 1st violin and almost jumped out of my seat to hear them singing harmony. It was awesome. How sad that either I was so clueless or that I'd been listening to such mediocre ensembles that those voices never sang for me before. I can't thank you enough for opening that door.
