“When a chamber group has this kind of energy and spark, the result is greater than the sum of its parts, and it’s magical.”  – Melia Watras


There is something special about chamber music.  The performers are intricately connected, and they brings a soulfulness and intimacy to the music that is unique.  This week we feature performances from all-female chamber ensembles.
