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.
It is with a heavy heart that we let you know that the 2020 Festival had to be cancelled. COVID-19 has disrupted many of our cherished summer activities, and festivals around the world are amongst them. Going forward, there are many questions about what the future will look like, but we all know that keeping one another safe from a devastating disease has to be our central consideration.
But, out of sight is not out of mind. We know you are there, dear audiences, fellow musicians, dear students, and we continue to be committed to what we all love: Music. We will continue to make music, teach music, and are looking for new ways to share our work with you. Over the past three months, our local students have continued their musical learning thanks to various technologies, and we have heard from parents who thank us for contributing a degree of normalcy to their children's lives. We have played mini concerts in our living room, and, when the capricious Eastern Sierra spring weather allowed it, on our front porch. We have seen neighbors cheer us on, socially distanced from the yard and the street, and we have heard from many of you, near and far, that you enjoyed "being in the moment" with us, even if we were united just over screens.
If you have not yet, please join us for home/porch concerts this summer! You can see the schedule here.
Most of all, please stay healthy, protect one another from exposure, and seize this opportunity to reflect upon and cherish all the good that life has to offer during these unprecedented times!
