The Great Falls Symphony's Chamber Music Series presents seven concerts each season, featuring performances by the Chinook Winds, Cascade Quartet, and collaborative guest artists from a variety of artistic disciplines—Phil Aaberg (piano), Mark Elliot Bergman (bass), Sarah Dassinger (dancer), Dakotah Watson (digital artist), Heather Barnes (soprano), and Johan Eriksson (saxophone) to name just a few.
These performances are intimate and exciting; with smaller venues and small ensembles, audience members have the chance to experience great performances in an up-close and personal setting. Programs are innovative, community-focused, and often collaborative across artistic disciplines. You never know when the next concert will feature special screenings of short films with live music, visual artwork by local students, dramatic literary readings, or a choreographed dance in performed by one of Great Falls' own local performing artists. Join us for the next concert and see what we're up to next!
This concert series is unique. Nowhere else in Montana can you regularly see musicians of this caliber performing such innovative and exciting programs.
All concerts are free for the 2020-21 season! In addition to the live performances, concerts are recorded and broadcast later via multiple platforms.
The Chinook Winds and the Cascade Quartet are featured on every Chamber Music Series performance.
These two chamber ensembles form the core of the Symphony’s orchestra as section leaders and serve as the Symphony’s ambassadors, reaching out to diverse populations and far-flung places throughout the region with their touring and outreach. All members of the quartet and quintet come from different parts of the country, each with advanced degrees from renown conservatories and impressive musical backgrounds. But each person has taken their passion for music and followed it here: to play music under Montana’s Big Sky.
The artists develop each program for the Chamber Music Series—choosing diverse repertoire and exciting guest artists to bring Great Falls audiences a unique and intimate musical experience.
