“Music is the divine way to tell beautiful, poetic things to the heart.” – Pablo Casals


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 on Feminine Fusion, we feature performances from all-female chamber ensembles.
