Chamber Music Network is proud to announce the return of ChamberPalooza, a day of live chamber music performances at the Cincinnati Art Museum, will return once again on September 3, 2022, Noon to 4:05 PM!

In a first for us, we commissioned a chamber music piece, “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 will be dedicated to those lost to Covid during the pandemic and will premiere at ChamberPalooza on September 3rd. The musicians are Sonya Szabo-Reynolds, piano; Jacob Martin, oboe; and Tom Guth, cello.

We will also have an Instrument Petting Zoo, where young and old can try a variety of musical instruments!
