The Chamber Project St. Louis
The Chamber Project St. Louis presents Essence on Tuesday, October 11, at 7:30 PM.

This program will feature our first commission of the season by Adam Maness, inspired by St. Louis. With Ligeti, we will hear a composer released from the constraints of communism finally free to express the rhythm of his homeland. Bartok and Dvorak capture the spirit of their countries in every tune they wrote. The program concludes with the masterwork by the great German composer, Brahms, who's music is the quintessential sound of his time and place." The performance takes place at The Vino Gallery, 4701 McPherson in the Central West End. For more information:
