Popular Outdoor Concerts Return for a Second Season
High Desert Chamber Music’s popular Music & Friends Summer Soirees return next month and will feature a cello-guitar duo in a series of small outdoor concerts at private residences around town.
These intimate, interactive performances will be held outdoors in beautiful Central Oregon settings. As is customary, our Music & Friends events include a one-set performance (no intermission), light hors d’oeuvres and wine.
These events will take place at locations in Sunrise Village, Mirror Pond and North Rim between July 12-July 14, and feature a new group to Central Oregon — Duo Apaixonado. The group displays a wonderful blend of talent presenting their own arrangements of outstanding cello-guitar music and is continually broadening the Latin, Spanish, classical and contemporary repertoire of the cello and guitar partnership. This program includes a varied program of Brazilian sambas and bossa novas, Argentinian tango, Peruvian waltz and a Spanish classical work.
As a small nonprofit, all proceeds will support our recovery from the economic hardship of COVID, enable our return to our live indoor Concert Series this upcoming season and support our efforts to provide Educational Outreach programming at no cost to local students, teachers or schools in Central Oregon.
These events are limited capacity, so please be sure to make a reservation! Join us for high-quality live classical chamber music in Central Oregon.
