TCMG News:
 
The Taos Chamber Music Group announces its 27th series of chamber music performances.
 
The upcoming season will focus on chamber music’s younger voices, introducing Hub New Music who will perform pieces recently written for them; a Chatter concert of 21st century music, including works by Pulitzer Prize winners John Adams and Caroline Shaw; and an exuberant program of compositions written when composers were 30 and under.
    
Violinist Laurie Carney of the American String Quartet will open TCMG's season with her elegant artistry, and another TCMG favorite, Gleb Ivanov, will be featured in an awe-inspiring solo piano concert as well as in a Russian chamber music program.
    
Widening the chamber music lens, TCMG brings “World Journey,” featuring Suzanne Teng and Gilbert Levy playing “music for the soul” on flutes, percussion and strings from around the globe. Shakespeare takes center stage in the season finale with music inspired by the bard and his words spoken by Taos thespian David Garver.
    
Concerts (except the Contributors Thank You Concert) take place in the Arthur Bell Auditorium at the Harwood Museum of Art, where TCMG is the Resident Chamber Music Group. Performances begin at 5:30 p.m. so you can make an evening of it and enjoy dinner afterwards at one of our participating restaurants. 
 
Tickets go on sale in August at www.taoschambermusicgroup.org.
