CHAMBER MUSIC FOR THE PEOPLE!
Classical Revolution Calgary is live chamber music in the fun, informal setting of Café Koi in downtown Calgary. On the first Monday of each month, a collective of passionate musicians, both professionals and part-timers, unite for a hosted jam session, dispensing with fussy trappings and tails, and bringing chamber music to the people. It's a perfect evening for those new to classical music, for anyone ready to hear it in a new light, and for experienced classical musicians eager to reach an adventurous, engaged audience.
Ready to join the Revolution? Come to Café Koi around 8 pm, bring your instrument and/or any music you'd like to read, or just relax and have a drink and a bite to eat -- we're here to make chamber music, not war!
Free admission, free will donations gratefully accepted. Classical Revolution Calgary is supported by a grant from Calgary 2012, celebrating our year as Cultural Capital of Canada.
