Know Before You Go

Not sure what to expect?

We’ve got you covered.

Classical music is great for stress relief, and going to a show shouldn’t stress you out. From helping you decide what to wear to suggesting where to eat, the info below will help make your Friends of Chamber Music outing carefree. 

What even is chamber music?!
Chamber music is instrumental music performed by a small ensemble with one player per part. Ensembles can be composed of any variety of wind or string instruments and include duos, trios, quartets, quintets, and sextets. The majority of chamber music ensembles do not use a conductor.
How should I dress?

Business attire is the norm. However, this is Denver so you will see a variety of attire, from blue jeans to high heels and pearls.

Where should we eat?

Join us for tacos, margaritas, and conversation at the Pioneer Bar beginning at 6:00 p.m. prior to each concert. The Pioneer is just around the corner from the Newman Center at 2401 S. University. Stop by and make some new friends!

Can I find out more about the program before I come?

Join us for Pre-Concert Talks in the hall at 6:30 PM prior to each Chamber Series concert for some enlightening information about the program you’re about to hear! If you’d like to dig deeper, we’ll have the complete concert program available on our website 10 days before each concert.

Use all your senses by visiting our Spotify and YouTube channels where you’ll find listening excerpts and interviews with our upcoming artists!

What are the COVID protocols?

We are still working with the Newman Center team and the University of Denver’s COVID Task Force to determine our COVID protocols.  What we do know right now is that masks will be required and we will be operating at a reduced capacity with socially-distanced seating.

Please be assured that we will comply with the most current COVID guidelines and protocols and will communicate those in a timely fashion as we near the opening date of the season on Wednesday, September 22, 2021.
