Chamber Music Palisades is returning for its 23rd season starting on October 23 at St. Matthew’s Church.
Beginning at 8 p.m., four concerts have been scheduled through 2020, according to its website, and will move to Wednesday nights.
The ensembles will include musicians from the Los Angeles Philharmonic, LA Opera and the LA Chamber Orchestra.
“We hire the best people in town,” Susan Greenberg said in an interview with the Palisadian-Post. “A lot of the musicians are studio musicians, so it’s the best of the best.”
Greenberg is a co-artistic director along with Dolores Stevens, a concert pianist. Members of Chamber Music Palisades include Greenberg, a flutist, oboist Jennifer Cullinan, Sergio Coelho on clarinet, Judith Farmer on bassoon, Amy Jo Rhine on horn and Stevens on piano.
Alan Chapman, a radio host on KUSC-FM radio, will emcee the four Wednesday night concerts on October 23, January 15, March 4 and May 6.
Founded in 1997 by four Palisadians, Chamber Music Palisades is a nonprofit, public benefit corporation “dedicated to the promotion and support of classical music.”
The shows will consist of everything from Mozart to newer contemporary pieces, along with different instrumentation for each. The shows are designed to be audience friendly and inviting to those who might not be familiar with the classical genre.
“We’re trying to give this gift to the community,” Greenberg said. “It’s just been so gratifying over the years that we’ve had such a loyal and supportive audience.”
Tickets will be available for purchase at the door with both cash and credit card, and will start at $35 per person, free for students. A season of four concerts can be purchased for $120.
Concertgoers can call 310-463-4388 with any questions.
