The Music Room Chamber Players Series

Our winter concert series will take your breath away.

We’re pleased to present Season 8 of The Music Room Chamber Players Series, featuring a fantastic and diverse array of concerts, presented in the intimate environment of The Peggy Corkum Music Room.

Concerts

All concerts begin at 7:30pm, and take place at The Peggy Corkum Music Room, 6181 Lady Hammond Road.

What a pleasure it is to bring you Season 8 of the Music Room Chamber Players series!

Once again, in partnership with Dalhousie University’s Fountain School of Performing Arts, we will bring you a season of 20 Wednesday night concerts, with a mix of new faces and old friends, music to discover and classics that move us time and time again.

Some highlights:

• Recitals by two concertmasters of fabulous orchestras: Martin Chalifour from the LA Philharmonic on Sept 18th, and Robert Uchida from the Edmonton Symphony (and of course, beloved former concertmaster of Symphony Nova Scotia) on April 8th.

• After his astounding playing at Scotia Festival this year, horn virtuoso Philip Myers returns for a chamber recital on Oct 30th, including a reprise of the great Brahms Horn Trio. Please don’t miss this!

• On the newer side, for the first time, we are co-presenting a concert with Upstream’s Open Waters Festival: on January 8th, Barry Guy, bass, and Maya Homberger, baroque violin, bring their unique approach to a program of Biber to improv.

• Mezzo soprano Andrea Ludwig has been a favourite with Symphony Nova Scotia audiences for years, and I can’t wait for her recital of Berlioz, Britten, Clara Schumann and Ravel that will conclude our series on April 15th.

Of course, we have a host of wonderful local musicians, including pianist Peter Allen, guitarist Jeff Torbert, cellist India Yeshe Gailey, violinist Mark Lee, Blue Engine String Quartet, bassist Max Kasper, and many more. The depth of talent in Nova Scotia is extraordinary.

I can honestly say that I’m looking forward to every concert on the roster.

We have new pricing options this year. Single tickets remain $30. You can subscribe to the entire series of 20 concerts for $300 (that’s a 50% savings at just $15 per concert) or buy a Pick 10 Package for $200, or a 33% savings.

If you are aged 30 or under, you can buy a subscription for $200 or a Pick 10 Package for $150.

And as always, full-time students at Dalhousie’s Fountain School of Performing Arts are admitted free to all 20 of our concerts.

Looking forward to seeing you soon,
