“Last year’s event exceeded our expectations in many ways, and though we are sorry to miss our in-person gathering, we are excited to repeat this online format,” states Executive Director Isabelle Senger. “Support from this evening allows us to continue offering all our Educational Outreach programs at no cost to students, families, and schools in Central Oregon.”
The presentation will include a special concert featuring Southern California-based Aviara Trio.
High Desert Chamber Music’s Educational Outreach includes performances and Q&A sessions at local schools, public masterclasses, and the Spotlight Chamber Players chamber music training program.
The mission of High Desert Chamber Music is to bring world-class chamber music and musicians to Central Oregon. Through our concert series and Educational Outreach programs, we aspire to heighten a level of appreciation, awareness, and understanding of this great genre of classical music.
