In recent years there has been a sort of renaissance in the classical music world and we are thrilled to see the genre becoming more mainstream! We have jumped on board with this movement and have been working hard to expand the traditional definition of “chamber music” within our own Chamber Music Series. Whether you’re a classical music junkie or curious newbie, our goal is to make chamber music fun and enjoyable for everyone!
We are currently in our ninth season of our Chamber Music Series with two performances under our belts. The first performance being Lightwood Duo, featuring a clarinet and guitar player, with selections including “Girl from Ipanema ” and 28 different TV theme songs, of which they asked the audience to shout out the name of each song as soon as they recognized the tune.
Name that song! We’re enjoying Lightwood Duo tonight- the Davis Arts Chamber Music Series has begun! Join us on the first Friday of the month at 7pm (October-May) at Layton’s Alpine Church.

The second performance of our season was a trumpet player named Zach Buie, brought back by popular demand (check out the video below to see why)! Accompanied by only a piano, Zach took us around the world in just one hour with his “Musical Travelogue” performance with a nontraditional chamber music instrument, the trumpet.
Thank you to Zach Buie for a great evening at our November Chamber Music Series.

While we like to incorporate out-of-the-norm programming in this series, we also understand that traditional chamber music can be exciting and wonderful when experienced live. That is why we strive to create a mix of traditional and nontraditional chamber music styles within our season each year.
The Chamber Music Series is one of the many programs we provide absolutely free to the community. Every month we see a diverse audience including families with young children, couples of all ages out for date night, teenagers attending for course credit, friend groups and single individuals who love music, and our loyal group of “regulars” whom we’ve been lucky enough to get to know on a first name basis. This program alone serves approximately 600-800 people every single year. If you have never experienced one of our chamber concerts before, what are you waiting for?
