Chamber music comes in many forms, shapes and sizes, an aspect of the art form that draws listeners and sustains their passion over lifetimes. This concert offers a rich slice of those possibilities, where one can hear everything from the classic combination of strings and piano to violin and clarinet in Klezmer-style dialogue. For further variety, the French horn injects the timbre of the brass family, completing a sonic landscape of vivid textures and joyful surprises.
“CMS at the Meadows” will take place rain or shine at Pitney Meadows Community Farm, under the High Tunnel greenhouse, a large outdoor event space. Performances will all be 90 minutes long with no intermission.
