The seating process for the Chamber Music Society of St. Louis 2022-23 Season in the E. Desmond Lee Concert Hall at the 560 Music Center has begun. Seats are flying off the shelves…well…the seats are not actually going anywhere…but their availability is. To ensure we can fulfill your seating preference, call us to renew/subscribe over the phone. 314-941-6309 That is the best way to put you in the process going on right now to get your desired seating area.
You can also order online but the software does not allow for indicating seating preference. Call us to do that if you desire a certain area. By the way, the 560 has some very cool software to view the seats in the space. CLICK HERE to view.
Thursday evening at 5:30pm and repeated on Monday at 10am, you can hear the The Chamber At Home broadcast of a program where you chose the repertoire. “All About You” features two giants of the chamber repertoire, the stunning Schumann Piano Quintet in Eb Major and Mendelssohn’s Octet also in Eb. Two other works you chose are a trio Beethoven composed for clarinet, cello and piano and the popular and dramatic prelude in C# Minor by Rachmaninoff.
The “cast of thousands” you will hear performing are violinists Andrea Jarrett, Becky Boyer Hall, Angie Smart, Jessica Cheng Hellwege, Ann Fink and Hannah Ji. The violists are Chris Tantillo and Susan Gordon and cellists Bjorn Ranheim and Alvin McCall. The pianists are Peter Henderson and Alla Voskoboynikova and clarinetist is Tzuying Huang.
The Schumann, Beethoven and Rachmaninoff have fun stories plus some fun facts about the Rachmaninoff and Mendelssohn which I share that help connect with the music.
So, please get your subscription renewals or orders into the mix and….. I will see you on the radio,
