Chamber Music Concerts

History

The UNLV Chamber Music Society was created in 2012 to fill a void in the chamber music community in Southern Nevada. Until this society was introduced, there were no established chamber music societies in all of Southern Nevada, despite the community of artists and students who could appreciate and benefit from it.

Among the many ensembles who have performed in the six-year history of the society include the Parker String Quartet, the American String Quartet, the Fry Street String Quartet, Boston Brass, Zephyros Winds, Horszowski Trio, and the Dorian Wind Quintet.

Chamber Music Society

Educational outreach is an important feature of our society, and each invited chamber ensemble performs masterclasses and clinics where students work with these talented artists. Students learn the essential techniques of chamber music playing from some of the best musicians in the country. In addition to the invited ensembles, the UNLV Chamber Music Society also showcases local musicians, giving them a world-class stage and an established venue through which they can create and perform. This society is devoted to classical music, executed at the highest level, and delivered to audiences who are unable to attend anything similar at a local venue.

Upcoming Events

WindSync, a collective of five outstanding North American wind musicians, present con-certs that are intimate, joyful, and thoughtfully programmed. Recent winners of the Concert Artists Guild and Fischoff competitions, they approach their mixed repertory of wind quintets and arrangements with the highest level of artistic dedication.

The Miró Quartet is one of America’s most celebrated and dedicated string quartets. The New Yorker called them “furiously committed” and the Cleveland Plain-Dealer noted they possessed “exceptional tonal focus and interpretive intensity.” For the past twenty years the Quartet has performed throughout the world on the most prestigious concert stages.
