The artistic directors of The Chamber Project
The Chamber Project St. Louis presents Recess on Tuesday, February 4, at 7:30 pm and Sunday, February 9, at 7:00 pm. "A playful program of music for winds, this concert is sure to please. Inspired by local composer LJ White's duet for clarinets, Big Fish, we asked him to write a new piece for this concert which also features a thrilling work by Valerie Coleman and some beloved music for winds not often heard. " Tuesday's concert takes place at the Jefferson College Fine Arts Theater 1000 Viking Drive Hillsboro, MO. Sunday's concert takes place at the Schlafly Tap Room, 2100 Locust in midtown.
