In its origins, the concept of chamber music referred to music that was composed for the home; a smaller, more intimate setting, as opposed to theatrical performances and church services, and consisting of a few instrumentalists. Today, chamber music is commonly defined as music that is written for a small group of musicians in a setting open to music lovers within the community.
The Instrumental Society of Calgary strives to present chamber music in a way that honours the original core values of chamber music in a modern way, providing an environment that cultivates musical talent and shares it with the community.
At the Instrumental Society of Calgary, our goal with our chamber music is to transport the audience to new places, using music as a window into the world, and chamber music as a personal guide.
