Is there is a whiff of conspiracy about Chamber Music at Bethany’s season-opener? Or it all just a simple misunderstanding?
No, no, no. Nothing of the sort. We at CM@B are simply here to serenade you with the musical best that two (totally-not-conspiring) countries, Russia and America, have to offer.
CM@B Co-Directors Yasuko Oura and Tim Munro will be joined by a string quartet made up of some of Chicago’s best players, and busy bass baritone Sam Handley, a rising Chicago star praised for “his rich, burnished” voice.
