A Note from the Music DirectorSheila Reinhold

Thank you to all our audience members and community sponsors for a wonderful fifth season. We so enjoyed sharing great music with you in our home venue, the lovely and acoustically excellent sanctuary of CSAIR in Riverdale. Our audience base is growing and we look forward to our next season of warm intimate concerts. In addition, your support has enabled us to continue our programs for families as well as our community outreach concerts bringing music to those who are not able to come out to hear us. We have made many friends in the VA Medical Center and in several area nursing homes who now look forward to our visits, and these programs are so very rewarding to us all.

Our sixth season will open on Saturday evening November 1, 2014 at CSAIR. Stay tuned for dates and program details for the full season. And please continue to send us any comments or suggestions. It is our feeling of close communication with our circle of music lovers that makes this series so special to us, and keeps us coming back season after season!

Support Music for Kids

When you subscribe to the Saturday evening series, please consider our Music-for-the-Community Package. We believe exposing children to the beauty and excitement of chamber music can inspire their participation in and enjoyment of music-making of all kinds for years to come. And this season we hope to continue our efforts to bring music to our neighbors in nursing and rehab facilities who are not able to come to our home at CSAIR – last season we returned for our third annual visit to the James J. Peters VA Medical Center. But to make these community-building programs possible and available for all, we need your help.

Music-for-the-Community Package
$180: includes 2 subscriptions to our 3-concert Saturday evening series, plus a $60 donation (tax-deductible to extent permissible by law) to help underwrite the Sunday Family Programs, as well as programs bringing music to those in the community who are not able to come to our home at CSAIR.
