About Intimate Voices
Intimate Voices presents concerts of classical and contemporary repertoire played by world-class musicians in an annual concert series at its acoustically excellent home venue, the Conservative Synagogue Adath Israel of Riverdale (CSAIR) in Riverdale, the Bronx, as well as in a portfolio of donated events in the broader community.
The musicians of Intimate Voices bring a wealth of concert experience in venues all over the globe to the lovely and intimate CSAIR sanctuary, the ideal setting for experiencing the immediacy and intensity that is at the heart of chamber music. The programming includes masterworks of the repertoire as well as wonderful but lesser-known works of the past and present, balancing the new and the familiar, with pieces that challenge as well as delight. The musicians introduce the selections in an relaxed and informal atmosphere, and refreshments and a reception with the musicians following the concert add to the intimacy of these special evenings.
The musicians also reach out into the community. Having a special focus on playing for childen and families, they present an annual free sensory/autism - friendly afternoon Family Program at CSAIR, and play for classes of children at a local special-needs pre-school. In addition, they share their music at the James J. Peters VA Medical Center in the Bronx and other area nursing homes and rehab facilities,
Since 2009, Intimate Voices has brought together a growing and diverse community of arts-loving people from Riverdale, Northern Manhattan, Southern Westchester and beyond. We look forward to seeing you at CSAIR and sharing our "intimate voices" with you in Riverdale!
