A group of chamber music enthusiasts gathered last month at the Schlafly Tap Room for Chamber Project St. Louis’ 15th anniversary celebration concert. Along with cupcakes and drinks, guests enjoyed a performance by the music group, in which they played a piece by living female composer Valerie Coleman. The group ended with a classic by Maurice Ravel. CPSTL’s performances are interactive and reflect a 21st century audience in both style and content.
“As a classical music lover my whole life, playing growing up and [in] orchestra, just to see an organization that puts programming from people of color and women on the forefront as a majority of what is played is important. And it’s really cool to watch and watch grow over the last fifteen years.” – CPSTL Board of Directors President Jennedy Lombard
