Chamber Music Unbound is a nonprofit 501(c)3 arts organization dedicated to providing
outstanding classical music performances and music education to the growing populations of Mono and Inyo counties. CMU offers a
variety of activities for children and adults
which nurture the love for music in people of all ages and backgrounds. CMU continues the programs that originated in 1998
as part of the Felici Trio's Rural Residency, a grant program of the National Endowment for the Arts (NEA). Youth programs
include in-school assemblies and classroom encounters for all grade levels, as well as after-school instrumental classes. Adult
education and outreach is conducted in close collaboration with other institutions such as Cerro Coso Community College.
When we "play," we engage for enjoyment and recreation rather than for serious or practical purposes. We associate play with childhood and a child's approach to discovering the world. Play is essentially immaterial, and yet we "play" instruments in order to "make" music.
Our 16th winter season features programs that reflect the playfulness of the human spirit in chamber music. Innocence and cunning; intimacy and companionship; strategy, luck and chance; blood, sweat and tears; creativity, utter freedom and strict rules are all elements of the great game of music.
Our musical "playmates" this season are violist Roland Kato, violinist Josefina Vergara, bassist Nico Abondolo and conductor Daniel Allcott. Together we will explore old continents and discover new musical worlds.
Probably the word "play" is an ancient as the word "work"...And if you ever feel there is just "too much work, not enough play..." in your life: let us nurture your inner child and come join us in the game of chamber music...
