High Desert Chamber Music 8th Annual Gala

High Desert Chamber Music (HDCM) announces the Eighth Annual Gala will be held on Saturday, November 14 at 6pm at the Bend Golf and Country Club. The evening includes a performance, dinner and silent auction with donations from over 100 local businesses and organizations. The concert will feature the recipients of our Educational Outreach program, the Spotlight Chamber Players, performing Capriccio & Fugue by Felix Mendelssohn and Allegro molto from Beethoven’s Razumovsky string quartet.
The Spotlight Chamber Players program provides a high level of weekly chamber music instruction with Isabelle Senger, as well as select visiting artists. This program provides performance opportunities at all HDCM events and in the community, and is offered at no cost to the student. Auditions are held annually in the Fall. The students selected for this year’s program include Mateo Garza and Hannah Ortman (violins), Ben Kroeker (viola) and Amy Wheeler (cello).
“We are pleased to have outgrown our previous location, and looking forward to the larger Bend Golf and Country Club this season. Our Annual Gala is such an important event for our organization, and I am proud to showcase the Spotlight Chamber Players. I have worked with this group for the past four years, and they have also received private instruction from a number of our guest artists. This group is a strong representation of what our program provides and can accomplish,” states Executive Director Isabelle Senger.
Proceeds from this evening will benefit the programs of High Desert Chamber Music: Concert Series and the Spotlight Series. In addition to the Spotlight Chamber Players program, further Educational Outreach efforts include providing students with direct contact to the guest performers through performances and Q&A sessions at local schools and providing complimentary tickets to concerts.
