Seventeen years ago the Buffalo Chamber Music Society inaugurated the Gift to the Community concert series, free concerts on Sunday afternoons in Kleinhans Music Hall. Supported by the Cameron and Jane Baird Foundation our Gift series continues to attract excellent audiences including many families with children.
44 recitalists have performed on our series and, in addition, each one has also performed in an Erie County school for students free of charge. Some of these school concerts have also included master classes.The artists we present in these recitals are poised on the threshold of major careers and usually play on our series just before their New York debuts. Play the slide show below to see a few of their recent accomplishments.
