Intimate Voices Presents...

 

2015-2016 Season

8th Season

 

A Note from the Music Director

Sheila ReinholdAn enthusiastic crowd filled the sanctuary of CSAIR on November 5 for the opening concert of our 8th season. We love playing for such a great audience of intensely involved listeners.

Our next concert on Saturday evening January 14 at 8 pm will be a special opportunity to enter the world of great chamber music composed prior to the era of Haydn and Mozart. Our evening of Baroque gems last season was a very popular program! And this season we will again voyage back through the centuries, this time to play marvelous works by Handel, Bach, Vivaldi, and others for various combinations of 2 violins, cello, and harpsichord. Intimate Voices regulars violinist Renée Jolles, cellist James Wilson and I will be joined once again by Carsten Schmidt, who will bring another of his magnificent harpsichords. Come hear this wonderful Baroque music as it was meant to be heard -- in an intimate setting!

Our evening will be enhanced by a return visit of TheCheeseGuy with a tasting of his fabulous artisanal natural kosher cheeses. All cheeses and our usual wine and refreshments are included in the ticket price. Doors open at 7:30 for cheese-tasting, wine, tea and coffee.

Click here to order tickets and for more information, or call the CSAIR office at 718-543-8400.

Also, watch for the announcement of the date for our free Family Program later this spring. And our annual community outreach visits to local nursing homes and the James J. Peters VA Medical Center will soon get underway. Please help keep all our programs running by becoming a Friend of Intimate Voices. Contribute in any amount possible for you, tax -deductible to extent permissible by law, by donating online (click here) or by sending a check made out to CSAIR and designated for Intimate Voices to:

Support Music for Kids and in the Community

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 plan 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 to the James J. Peters VA Medical Center and went to several area nursing homes. But to make these community-building programs possible and available for all, we need your help.

Music-for-the-Community Package
$120: includes 1 subscription to our 3-concert season series, plus a $50 donation (tax-deductible to extent permissible by law) to help underwrite the Community Outreach Programs, now in their 7th year, bringing music to area rehab and nursing facilities, and also featuring our free Family Program.

Purchase this package online, use the printable order form, or call the CSAIR office at 718-543-8400.
