As the 2021-22 academic year races toward the finish line, there are still many terrific performances to enjoy! For starters, don’t miss the final two Chamber Music Showcase performances tonight and on April 16—in person or online—featuring student groups from every department, and including new group arrangements and diverse repertoire.
Says Chamber Music Coordinator Meta Weiss, “With their faculty coaches, students in the college’s Chamber Music Program have been rehearsing, studying and crafting their interpretations of varied chamber music works all semester, and they’re excited to present them in our showcase concerts.”
She adds, “Audiences will hear wind quartets, wind quintets, piano trios, piano quintets, string quartets, string quintets, saxophone quartets, brass quintets and various single-instrument brass ensembles—including a trombone quartet, horn quartet and tuba/euphonium quartet.
“This semester, we also have a harp duo, and several wind duos and trios. It’s an exciting lineup of chamber groups playing repertoire that’s just as varied as the groups themselves!”
Every semester of chamber music is different because both the groups and the repertoire they are studying change. As Weiss explains, “Each performance features groups from every department, but the formation of the groups and personnel are always new … and there’s an almost unending wealth of chamber music repertoire.”
See you tonight in the Chamber Hall at 7:30 p.m. or stream the performance online!
