A Note from the Music Director - September 2023

Dear Friends,

It is with great excitement that we announce the opening of ticket sales for our 2023-24 season - our first full, in-person season since 2019-20. After two years of online COVID programming followed by our limited return last season, we hope to see you once again at our home in the lovely sanctuary of CSAIR!


Our musicians are ready and eager to return. Renée Jolles, violinist, and James Wilson, cellist, will join me for our 15th consecutive season together at Intimate Voices. We are delighted to welcome violist Dana Kelley in November, and to play with violist Ramón Carrero-Martínez once again in March.  

As always, our programs will include the old and the new, familiar masterpieces and lesser-known wonderful works. We are planning string quartets for our November and March concerts, and our January concert will feature virtuosic duos for two violins and for violin and viola. These duo combinations have intrigued composers and players alike for centuries, though most of the works are rarely heard in large concert halls. Our venue at CSAIR is ideal for this truly intimate music. It has been a decade since our last duo evening at Intimate Voices, and Renée and I are excited to bring some new repertoire to our audience.

We are also planning a full return to our Outreach Programs, with visits to area nursing homes and the VA Medical Center, and events for special-needs kids and their entire families. Our community's generosity has made this programming possible in the past, and, with your continued generosity, we look forward to resuming at full speed!

Online ticket sales are now open, and ticket prices remain the same as pre-pandemic. Our evenings will once again offer wine, coffee, tea and light refreshments, all included in the ticket price. As you place your ticket order, please do consider our Music-for-the Community Package, which includes 1 subscription to our 3-concert season series, plus a $50 donation (tax-deductible to extent permissible by law) to help underwrite our Community Outreach Programs. To purchase this package online, please select both the $70 subscription and the $50 donation.

We look forward to seeing you at CSAIR this season!
