Welcome to the home of the Living Room Chamber Music Project!
We are a group of chamber musicians dedicated to taking music out of the concert hall into a more welcoming and intimate environment. We aim to bring the power of live music to everyone, one living room at a time. The name "chamber music" itself implies a smaller space, where the audience is a vital part of the performance. At a Living Room concert, you will be able to interact with music on a deeper level because you are close at hand to the musicians. In this way we establish a personal connection with our audience. In addition to performing music of many different styles and genres, we also speak about each work on the program to help you gain insight and perspective for each piece, whether you are a casual listener or a classical music aficionado. At the end of each performance there is a reception where guests and performers can mingle and have a drink and a bite to eat. Please consider hosting or attending a concert, and supporting our endeavors to achieve our goal of promoting classical music as something vibrant, approachable, and meaningful for all. More information about hosting one of our concerts can be found on our Hosting FAQ page.
