Soirées

Chamber” in chamber music originally referred to a room in a house or palace in which the music was performed. At the Chamber Circle, we stay true to that tradition by organizing quarterly soirées at a private residence. These private soirées feature members performing for one another and to friends in an informal environment. We feature standard repertoire, and also occasionally premiere contemporary works.

The Chamber Circle knows how daunting it can be for even the best chamber musicians to find other good chamber musicians – and so, we are very proactive in:

  1. Recommending suitable repertoire – encouraging our musicians to expand their musical horizons
  2. Matching appropriate partners – of the same music-making ability
  3. Providing the platform to perform (private soirées, productions and public concerts)
