Garmany Chamber Music Series Returns 10/16Garmany Chamber Music Series. The Series kicks off on October 16, 2014, with the electrifying NYC-based JACK Quartet, which has been earning rave reviews all over the world. The Series continues on November 20, 2014, with the L.A.-based Calder Quartet, one of the most distinguished and versatile string quartets of our time. On February 5, 2015, the mesmerizing mixed vocal ensemble Roomful of Teeth, which recently won the Grammy Award for Best Small Ensemble, performs. The Garmany season concludes on April 23, 2015, with the one-of-a-kind music cooperative International Contemporary Ensemble (ICE), which plays everything from Vivaldi and Beethoven to music written by the most celebrated living composers.

As a new feature of this year's Garmany experience, concert-goers may enjoy a pre-concert reception, with a cash bar and complementary hors d'oeuvres, conveniently set up in the Sukman Foyer (Millard lobby) for the first three concerts, which will take place in Millard Auditorium, and in Lincoln lobby for the final concert of the season, which will take place in Lincoln Theater. Patrons may arrive any time during the 6 p.m.-7 p.m. serving hour, with no advance reservations required. Tables will be available, or you may mingle freely with your fellow guests. These new receptions will replace the pre-concert dinners previously held in the 1877 Club.
