Mozart Quintets

Date: September 25, 2022

Time: 4:00pm

Venue: St Mary’s Episcopal Church

Mozart’s viola quintets are crowning jewels of the chamber music repertoire. CMSCVA artists perform the twin quintets written within a month in the spring of 1787. One is all humor and light, the other dark and stormy. The two come together to form a spectacular musical portrait of one of history’s most gifted composers.

Bach and his Inspirations

Date: October 30

Time: 4:00pm

Venue: Second Presbyterian Church

We regularly enjoy the music of Johann Sebastian Bach in concerts and at home. But what came before Bach? Harpsichordist Carsten Schmidt performs a recital exploring the composers who inspired the young Bach, including Dieterich Buxtehude and Johann Pachelbel.

An Evening at Versailles

Date: December 19

Time: 7:00pm

Venue: Church of the Holy Comforter

You are invited to an evening of unbridled French Baroque music written by the men and women who were musicians at the French Court at Versailles. Settle back and enjoy the wit and drama that was savored 400 years ago - cantatas that tell legendary stories, trios that satire court life, a reimagining of the carillon at St Genevieve, and dances of the highest elegance.

La Vida Notturna

Date: February 3

Time: 7:00pm

Venue: Church of the Holy Comforter

No composer embodied the blend of strict protocol and evocative sensuality of 18th century Spain better than Luigi Boccherini, court composer to Infante Luis Antonio of Spain. The music of American composer Brian Nabors draws from combinations of Jazz Funk, R&B, and Gospel with the modern flair of contemporary classical music. These worlds collide in spectacular program of string chamber music that includes the world premiere of a quintet commissioned from Nabors by CMSCVA for our 2022-23 season.

Waltz / Samba

Date: April 16, 2023

Time: 4pm

Venue: First Unitarian Universalist Church

In Romantic-era Vienna, the waltz and music from Hungary were the big fads. In America, Latin music is one of our dance party staples. High art and popular culture join hands and step out in this joyful concert of chamber music by Brahms, Strauss and American composer Kevin Day.
