Good Afternoon All,
I just returned from Chicago where I heard the touring Berlin Philharmoniker perform the Mahler 7th Symphony. This is a not an often programed work. I have played it a few times in my career but never heard it from the audience. I also have never heard the Berliners live so it was a nice treat. After the concert, I had a chance to visit with colleagues from the Chicago Symphony and the Berlin orchestra, which exhibited, yet again, how music brings us together and nurtures our humanity. So…. this seems like a good time to wish everyone a very HAPPY THANKSGIVING.
A few months ago, I asked for your help regarding classical music reviews (which so many of you responded…thank you). All of our local classical music organizations are working to urge media entities to support us with reviews. A reviewer from radio station KDHX attended our November 7 concert and posted a review. https://kdhx.org/articles/
I am told that it will encourage the station to review more classical concerts if they see a large number of clicks on the review (the lack of which was the catalyst for the Post-Dispatch to significantly cut back on reviewing classical events). So, please click on the link to read it and pass it along to others who may be interested. This will help all our local classical music organizations.
A reminder that access to the virtual stream of this November 7 “The Winds Blow Back” concert with Leonard Slatkin concert ends at midnight Sunday. So if you have not viewed it yet, check your ticket or virtual pass for the password and enjoy the music.
Wishing you a peaceful and pleasant Thanksgiving,
We deeply appreciate Chamber Music Society and the exquisite music they perform. Thank you for all the lovely music you have brought us over the years. We look forward to many more.
CMSSL has been doing all it can in the way of creative, highly successful efforts to compensate for the agony of 2020. That’s been very much appreciated.
Last night’s performance was, as usual, wonderful. We are looking forward to the next Chamber concert.
We are grateful to your beautiful, awe-inspiring CMSSL in our lives. As threadbare as our nation has become in so many ways, it is the regenerative power of music ant the arts that enthuses me. Keep on weaving! Thank you.
These concerts have been even better than I imagined. My hat off to your engineer- the sound quality exceeded that of most CDs I own of this repertoire. I also applaud Peter Henderson for tackling the Liszt this week. Thank you all so much for bringing so much light in these trying times.
Many thanks… for a very professionally presented performance of endearing music with the very best musicians.
I just wanted to express to you and the board what an exceptional job you each have done during these very trying times. I regularly attend many venues during the course of the year. The Chamber Music Society has by far created the best experience.
The concert was just thrilling. Loved the pianist. Adored the Dvorak. Happy to see Leonard in such an intimate setting. Terrific evening! Thanks.
Thank you for a fantastic evening.
What a wonderful venue, program, incredible musicians. Congratulations on such a great program and the hard work and effort it takes to achieve success for Chamber Music Society of St. Lous. Music is healing, and I thank you.
