NEW Musicians Behaving Badly

Sunday, May 14, 2017 | 6:30pm – Musicians Behaving Badly
Clara Schumann: Piano Trio in G minor, Op. 17
Roussel: Trio, Op. 40 for Flute, Viola and Cello
Strauss: Till Eulenspiegel’s Merry Pranks, arranged for Violin, Double Bass, Clarinet, Bassoon and Horn

In the spirit of Mother’s Day, NouLou Chamber Players’ season finale stirs up a little trouble with music by Clara Schumann, Albert Roussel, and Richard Strauss. Even Mom would let slide the playfulness and mischief this evening will entail. Come join us for an outstanding program that’s musician tested and mother approved!


Strummed & Struck- Schubert & Shostakovich

Friday, Mar. 3, 2017 | 7:30pm – Strummed & Struck: Schubert & Shostakovich
Schubert: Quartet for Flute, Guitar, Viola & Cello in G major, D. 96
Shostakovich: String Quartet No. 3 in F major, Op. 73

This concert is just about as unpredictable as your NCAA bracket! We welcome special guest guitarist Stephen Mattingly to join us on an elegant quartet by Franz Schubert. This, juxtaposed with Dmitri Shostakovich’s jaunty and sinuous third quartet, will certainly be a clash to remember! 


Loving Gestures

Wednesday, Feb. 1, 2017 | 7:30pm – Loving Gestures
Love is in the air—amongst our musicians, too! Join us as some of our cutest NouLou couples share the stage. You will also be swept away by a virtuosic rendition of Poulenc’s Trio for oboe, bassoon & piano, as well as the romantic woodwind quintet by Taffanel.



Thursday, Dec. 8, 2016 | 7:30pm – Winter Tales
Step inside from the crisp, cool air to enjoy a cozy evening filled with winter-themed music and narrations that will warm your heart. Highlights include Vivaldi’s “Winter” Violin Concerto, Beethoven’s Sextet for two horns & strings, and vocal selections. Special guests include Diana Morgen (horn) and Sarita Gustely (mezzo-soprano).
