At the same time, many people are tied to their houses.The ensemble will continue to bring music into your homes at this time despite the fact that we can not perform for from our regular concert venues.In the coming weeks we will offer you programs from the living rooms of our musicians, live streamed on our website. We ask that you consider supporting us musicians if you are able to, by hitting the donate button on this page.
