May 2017 marks the sixth annual National Chamber Music Month—a celebration of the many styles of small ensemble music performed in the U.S. today.
Each year, performers and presenters from all fifty states designate concerts, talks, and residencies in May as National Chamber Music Month events, resulting in increased media attention, broader and more diverse audiences, and a host of new programming. With your help, this year’s celebration will be the most successful yet. Signing up is free and easy: http://www.chamber-music.org/chamber-music-month-calendar?mini=calendar%2F2017-05.
But there’s more than one way to participate. This year, we’re inviting you to answer a simple question—What is Chamber Music?—in the form of a short video. Take a moment to share what defines small ensemble music in your eyes (in one minute or less) and post your response to Facebook and Twitter with the hashtag #ChamberMusicMonth. We’ll share your videos with our social media followers.
Every NCMM participant plays a part in maintaining the vitality and visibility of the form, helping to ensure that chamber music remains an integral part of America’s musical culture for years to come. Thank you for joining the movement.
