Listen Closely cookies

July 2015 HTC Garden concert

Listen Closely is a new chamber music initiative in Inwood, currently in our second season of concerts. We are a growing coalition of chamber musicians living uptown, and we are dedicated to sharing quality chamber music with our neighborhood. Our name reflects our craft; as musicians, we are all about full-hearted listening to one another and sharing intimate and memorable musical experiences with others through live performance. Additionally, we are listening closely to the pulse of our community to discover where and how our music is needed most. Our hope is to create new and befriend existing music-lovers of our neighborhood, and to do our part in developing a strong and vibrant local chamber music scene. We believe that classical music can be a powerfully positive presence in a community, and we hope to improve the quality of life in our neighborhood by providing affordable and convenient access to live performances, as well as sparking new romances between uptown locals and live chamber music. So come and talk to us. Share your ideas and dreams for classical music in Inwood. We’ll listen!
