Last year, ChamberPalooza! was thrilled to be back at the Cincinnati Art Museum 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.
Jacob Martin, Sonya Szabo-Reynolds and Tom Guth performed the World Premiere of "Hope is a thing with feathers" by Alyssa Morris at ChamberPalooza on
September 3, 2022. Click here to see the video!
Save the date for our next ChamberPalooza at the Cincinnati Art Museum: a whole afternoon of free chamber music featuring a variety of musicians from around the Greater Cincinnati area. Performances will take place in the Fountain Room. Admission is free of charge!
Bring your kids and explore our complimentary "Instrumental Petting Zoo" featuring stringed instruments from Antonio Violins and winds/brass from Buddy Rogers.
This year we are proud to announce two world premieres: “Powerful Impressions”, for flute and piano, by Jeanine Yeager (commissioned by the Chamber Music Network), performed by Sonya Szabo Reynolds, piano, and Gretchen Germann, flute; and “Sometimes It Happens So”, a song cycle for baritone and piano, music by Kile Smith based on poems by Jane Flanders, performed by Sonya Szabo Reynolds, piano, and Ben Flanders, baritone.
