ChamberPalooza! was thrilled to be back at the Cincinnati Art Museum for Family Fun Day, a day of live chamber music, on Saturday, September 3, 2022. The ever-popular instrument “Petting Zoo” was located nearby for a hands-on exploration of musical instruments. Door prizes included tickets for upcoming musical events, CDs and more!
For the first time in our history, Chamber Music Network commissioned a new chamber piece to mark the event: “Hope is the Thing with Feathers” by Alyssa Morris, CCM trained oboist and composer, and now Assistant Professor of Oboe and Music Theory at Kansas State University. The piece was dedicated to those lost to Covid during the pandemic and was performed by Sonya Szabo-Reynolds, piano; Jacob Martin, oboe; and Tom Guth, cello. More...
