New Perspectives: Exploring Diversity in Music
NCE's 2023-2024 Season (our 17th) program "New Perspectives: Exploring Diversity in Music", will feature some of the favorite chamber works of all time plus a few surprises. Each concert will feature a work by a woman composer or a composer of color, or both.
From NCE Board President
We hope that you are safe and well. Our 16th season, our best ever, reminded us of the value of outstanding live music. Our 17th will be even better! Thanks for being part of our musical community. As we continue with live performances, the National Chamber Ensemble has planned an exceptional 17th season with the following five performances:
Diva's Night Out with Schubert, Strauss and More - Holiday Cheer with renowned violinist Dylana Jenson - Passion Of The Tango - Diverse Romantic Visions: Florence Price and Brahms - Concerto Celebration: Bologne, Mendelssohn and Beethoven
Your safety and that of our artists is of the utmost importance. Although we are planning to do LIVE performances, rest assured that we are prepared to continue to provide a superb-quality view-at-home option.
We all need each other to keep the world of chamber music alive, and we hope you will join us for what promises to be a unique and thrilling season. NCE invites you to engage in whatever way you feel most comfortable.
Wishing you good health, safety, and inspiration.
NCE Board President
