arnica-4x4Please join us for our first concert of the 2014-2015 season this weekend – Sunday, November 2 at 2:30 pm at the Salem Public Library.

The concert is free to all comers – please check out the Camerata Musica website for more information.

2014-2015 season taking shape

We’ve got our three main concerts outside of Portland scheduled – and will be working on the Portland area concerts soon – but we thought you’d like to know what we’re going to be playing next season. We’re very excited about what is in store!

On November 2nd, we’ll return to the Salem Public Library auditorium for the Camerata Musica series, and we’ll be bringing three quartets from the height of the Classical period. We’ll be playing a quartet each by Mozart, Beethoven, and Schubert.

January 30th finds us in Tacoma, Washington, where we’ll make our first appearance on the Second City Chamber Series’ Masterpiece Series. It’s an all-American concert, with Barber’s String Quartet, Op. 11, Kenji Bunch’s Second Quartet “Concussion Theory”, and Daniel Ott’s Second Quartet. Daniel has been a friend to the quartet for years, and hails from Puyallup, Washington. His First Quartet met with much acclaim during the first March Music Moderne concert, and his Second Quartet is if anything even more impressive!

Another season in the books!

Thanks to everyone who came to our Britten celebration concert at the Community Music Center on Friday night. We had a tremendous time sharing these somewhat neglected masterpieces with you!

While the 13-14 season is over (sigh), we’re already planning for the 14-15 season. We’ll be returning to the Camerata Musica series at the Salem Public Library on November 23, 2014; and to the McTavish Room at Astoria’s Liberty Theater on February 15, 2015. In addition, we’re planning on presenting at least three concerts in or around Portland next season, dates and location(s) to be announced. So, if you’ve not gotten a chance to hear us due to our limited appearances in Portland, you’ll have three times the opportunity next season!
