chamber music group series
September 9, 2016 – May 22, 2017
Arthur Bell Auditorium at Harwood Museum of Art
Recognized for creative programming and first-class artistry, the Taos Chamber Music Group’s
twenty-fourth concert series of “wild and scenic” music continues to be informed by the unique flavor of its home in Taos, NM. Programs begin in September and run through May.
They include TCMG’s signature mix of chamber music masterpieces, more contemporary works and multidisciplinary collaborations, performed by some of NM’s finest musicians
as well as guest artists from around the world.
Parting the Veil

Sunday, October 30, 2016, 5:30 pm
This special program features violinist Laurie Carney of the American String Quartet and pianist David Friend, with whom Carney has recorded. Music that crosses the veil between life and death,
the elemental and the ethereal includes Robert Sirota’s Sonata #2 “Farewell” (written for Carney),
Olivier Messaien’s otherworldly Theme and Variations for violin and piano, Beethoven’s Violin
Sonata in G Major, op.96, and Nino Rota’s ardent Trio for flute, violin and piano.
All performances begin at 5 p.m. (except for the house concert which is one performance only
beginning at 3 p.m.) so that you can enjoy dinner out afterwards
at one of our participating restaurants.
Tickets go on sale in August. Order tickets by mail or at taoschambermusicgroup.org (get one concert free with season ticket subscription), or purchase in advance two weeks prior to each concert
at the Harwood Museum.
