Meeting House Chamber Music Festival

Music for a Summer Evening

What to do on those beautiful summer evenings in June and July to make them extra special and memorable? The Meeting House Chamber Music Festival has the answer - chamber music, the art form that gives us full-fledged masterpieces on a human scale. Chamber music has something for everyone - melodies, some soothing, some soaring, some simply beautiful; harmonic progressions that can take you to far away regions but always return you safely home again; story-telling without the need for words; a kaleidoscope of instrumental colors that can entice locked emotions to the surface.

Plans are now in place for the 2014 Season of classical and contemporary chamber music concerts presented by the Meeting House Chamber Music Festival. Orleans, Massachusetts has been the primary location of the Festival since its inception, with the addition of satellite concerts now presented in towns throughout Cape Cod.

In accordance with its original mission, the Meeting House Festival brings musicians of highest caliber to Cape Cod to present concerts in intimate settings and always in collaboration with Cape Cod musicians.

The Festival was founded by Donald Enos, who serves as artistic director and pianist for these concerts. After having received extensive musical training at the New England Conservatory, Mr. Enos returned to his native Cape Cod, where he is known for his solo work and collaboration with the Chatham Chorale and the Cape Cod Symphony, and presentations on the historically significant 1762 English chamber organ in South Dennis, Massachusetts.

This summer, the Meeting House Festival celebrates over four decades of chamber music in Orleans. Beginning June 22nd and 23rd with concerts featuring the outstanding violinist Irina Muresanu, the 2014 series progresses for six consecutive Monday evenings, with music by Beethoven ("Archduke" Trio), Handel (Concerto for solo harp), Mendelssohn (Trio in D minor), Brahms (A Major Piano Quartet), Haydn, Shostakovich, Debussy, Rodrigo, Mozart, and many others. Violin, cello, French horn, viola, harp, oboe, 9 foot Baldwin piano...

Mondays aren't convenient? Try one of our alternate venues in a surrounding town on a Sunday evening. Come and experience the Meeting House Festival this summer. Experience the delight of hearing exquisite instrumental nuance in ensemble, and the full range of exposed emotion made possible through chamber music.
