Welcome to Notes of Gratitude, the annual fundraiser for Second City Chamber Series and Young Chamber Players. Join us for our 2020-2021 season!
We invite you to partner with Second City Chamber Series in our mission to continue to bring classical chamber music to the Puget Sound area, and with our educational branch, the Young Chamber Players, to provide professional coaching and new performance opportunities to local high school students. We seek to help raise up the next generation of chamber musicians in our community.
In this time of uncertainty and social distancing we are keenly reminded of the importance of the arts, and the power of music to bring people together and uplift our spirits. We believe that music plays a key part in elevating our culture, and can strengthen the social bonds that ties our community together.
We earnestly invite you to join with us as we prepare to host live classical chamber music performances in our area again, recognizing that the current requirements for social distancing will not last forever. We plan to resume live performances of classical chamber music as soon as we are able to do so safely, and we look forward to continuing to serve our high school students with quality chamber music instructional experiences and performance opportunities. Your generous support makes it possible for us to pursue our mission of promoting and supporting chamber music and cultivating skill and passion for the arts with our educational outreach.
This year we were unable to host our usual in-person Summer Concerts, and had to move our annual fundraiser online. While we wait to resu me in-person, live concerts, we have been featuring local artists and their music in our virtual Snapshot series online. The interviews (view on YouTube HERE) give you the opportunity to learn more about artists in our community, and highlight some of their music performances(listen on YouTube HERE).
We remain optimistic for the future and look forward to continuing our mission: to connect our community to classical chamber music and to support amazing musicians in the Puget Sound area.
Second City Chamber Series will be having our annual fundraiser, Notes of Gratitude, with an exciting charity auction on eBAY available during the week October 4-11 and an online live concert event on October 11 at 2pm.
