Greetings to All Chamber Friends:
All of us at Chamber Music Society of St. Louis hope you will join us in wishing our favorite Maestro, Leonard Slatkin, a very HAPPY BIRTHDAY on this September 1.
You can salute the occasion by tuning in to Classic 107.3 for The Chamber At Home on Saturday afternoon at 4pm or the rebroadcast on Tuesday morning at 10am. This week’s broadcast features the wind instruments in ”The Winds Blow Back” with Leonard Slatkin conducting music by Gounod, Dvo?ák and Stravinsky. Details are HERE.
If you choose to listen at the Saturday time, be aware that the start time can vary (earlier or later) depending on the length of the opera, which precedes The Chamber At Home.
It is only a matter of weeks until we open our 15th Anniversary Season with Guest Artist Nicholas McGegan and “Romancing The Baroque”. Note that Nic’s appearance on September 18 with CMSSL will be his only concert this year in St. Louis. He will lead CMSSL musicians in a program of music that includes a much-loved keyboard concerto by Bach with harpsichordist Charles Metz and a concerto for 2 horns by Telemann with soloists Roger Kaza and Thomas Jöstlein. Rounding out the program are 2 enchanting symphonies, Haydn #83 and Schubert #5. You can find information HERE.
I hope everyone has a restful and safe Labor Day Weekend,
