Painting by Gay Hall

Welcome to our 63rd season of continued commitment to presenting a variety of ensembles that combine core chamber repertoire, modern and contemporary works.

Post concert reception in church lobby

After the concert we will hold a reception to celebrate this last concert of the season and hear about the exciting schedule for next year. Everyone will have an opportunity to bid on the gorgeous original painting created by Gay Hall just for CMC. You will also have a chance to meet the musicians and express your ideas about this year’s concert via a survey.


The Thalea String Quartet brings their signature vibrancy and emotional commitment to dynamic performances that reflect the past, present, and the future of the string quartet repertoire while celebrating diverse musical traditions from around the world. Fueled by the belief that chamber music is a powerful force for building community and human connection, the Thalea String Quartet has performed across North America, Europe, and China, and has appeared at the Kennedy Center, Massey Hall, and Weill Hall at Carnegie Hall. They have shared the stage with luminaries of the chamber music world, including members of the Emerson, Borromeo, and St. Lawrence String Quartets, and they have performed alongside celebrated artists including Pulitzer Prize-winning composer Caroline Shaw, violist Lawrence Power, acclaimed Canadian band BADBADNOTGOOD, and visionary hip hop artist Jay Electronica. With their program “Legacies,” Thalea String Quartet explores the American traditions of rap, rock, and bluegrass to tell stories of the Black experience. Connecting the new to the old and the traditional with the popular styles, they will present works by contemporary composers, The Beatles, and Antonín Dvořák.
