Listen Closely is a new chamber music initiative in Inwood, currently in our second season of events and concerts. We are a growing coalition of chamber musicians and composers 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 the music we love is most needed.
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 through educating, making connections, and trying new recipes.
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.
