Is it the hum of the audience in the lobby, the quiet hush that happens as the lights dim or that anticipation of the extraordinary sounds that we are about to hear? Or is it the moment the music finishes and we have just heard, connected with and experienced music that moves and dazzles us? Then, the audience applause erupts as a community drawn together by the performance. This is “live” chamber music in the HEART of our community.Join us for the Hoch Series season and experience the magic at Concordia in the Sommer Center.
