Chamber Music Day is everything you could wish for in a concert — endearing and audacious, variegated and profound, intimate and accessible, free, and freewheeling.” – Jaime Robles, “Entering a Many-Splendored Chamber” SF Classical Voice, September 13, 2009

“Chamber music has always been kind of a grassroots art form, and for the most part, people kind of work in their own little space, and not often in a situation where they encounter one another. The whole spirit of this event is just a fantastic thing.”             Alexander String Quartet violist Paul Yarbrough

 

It was wonderful. I was thrilled to be introduced to the groups and to many of the composers.” – Paula

Seamless transitions-wonderful!” – Jim

 

I’ve never been to a mixed genre concert like this. Piano jazz followed by Beethoven String Quartet! Do it every Sunday!” – Gary

I came for the Beethoven, but found out I really enjoyed sfSound and Earplay. I would never have dared to attend a whole concert of such “contemporary” music, but was totally taken in by the piece with 10 music stands for one flutist, and the computer playing strange sounds in a chamber music setting.” – Erika

Thank you for the excellent program and for keeping fine arts democratic and available to all.” – anonymous

Wonderful idea! Great variety of music. Interesting to have jazz mixed in with classical and modern chamber music. Now that I know how marvelous it is, I’ll bring musical friends next year! I liked that there were brochures of other events in S.F.” – Hilda

Wonderful. Continue!” – a visitor from Columbus, OH, 60

This is my second CMD, and it was a wonderful experience that I hope you can continue! I also present an arts festival here in SF, so I know it is not as simple or easy to do as you make it seem. Quite wonderful!!!” – anonymous

I don’t know what genius had the idea for this event, but what an incredible follow-through.” – anonymous
