CRG is pleased to again be a sponsor of the Chamber Music at the Chamber! Calliope Brass opened the new 2017-2018 Chamber Music at the Chamber  Season on Sunday, October 1st. They started off with an arrangement of “Allegro Maestoso” from George Fredrick Handel’s Water Music – which is a piece that I love.

This all female brass quintet went on to play eight more pieces of music, including Duke Ellington’s “In a Sentimental Mood”, Walk the Moon’s lively “Shut Up and Dance”, and a great ragtime piece: Lew Pollack’s “That’s a Plenty”. The music sounded lovely in the Chamber’s rotunda; easily heard without being too loud and without an echo. Listening to these renditions was an enjoyable way to spend part of a Sunday afternoon. They are a talented group.

Next up in the series is Music for the Imagination on Saturday, November 25, 2017 at 3:00 p.m., also at the Chamber of Commerce Rotunda in Gloversville. Tickets can be purchased at the Chamber and Mohawk Harvest Co-op.
