As our 2016 season winds down,  we are excited to announce the line up for our 2017 season. This is our 3rd season and in our short history, the 2017 season is our most ambitious season ever. Some of the highlights of the new season include performances by several returning artists as well as many new artists.

In addition to our strong vocal and chamber music recital series, we are especially proud to add a piano recital series and a choral series to our programming in 2017. We are also proud to announce a 3-part ‘East meets West’ series that feature musicians who uniquely meld music from Western and Eastern classical traditions to produce unique new compositions. In addition to concerts we also continue with our community events with travelogues, student recitals, and workshops.

Please take time to read about all of the extraordinary artists and offerings and join us as at one or more of our events in 2017. We look forward to sharing the joy of great live performances with you.
