Each Chamber Music Concert lasts approximately 45 minutes, includes insight and educational commentary on the pieces being played, and offers personal one-on-one interaction with musicians afterward.

Doors open at 1:30 pm for canapés and a cash bar. The concert starts at 2:30 pm sharp. Patrons are encouraged to arrive early as seating is first come, first served. Concert-goers are invited to stay after each concert for a brief post-performance cocktails mix and mingle with that afternoon’s musicians.
