Sight read chamber music in The Loop on Oct 2

Needs a location

I'm not the host of this event. If you are interested in this event, go to this link and RSVP there: https://ossiamf.com/events/2022/10/2/open-chamber-reading-session

This event is run by Nora Williams at the Fine Arts Building in the Loop. I've gone to one of these. It was enjoyable. Also, the Fine Arts Building itself is an experience, with olde tyme elevators with human operators. And Nora is fun, artsy, and positive person.

Again, don't RSVP here. Go to this link: https://ossiamf.com/events/2022/10/2/open-chamber-reading-session

Let's play strings/winds quartets/quintets/sextets in Wilmette (no piano)

When you RSVP to this event, you must also send an email to me at [masked].
Tell me:

  1. what instrument you play
  2. what work or individual movements you want to play.

This is *NOT* a sight-reading session. Come well prepared - whatever that means to you. We'll decide on some works and assign parts and then each person will have at a few weeks to work on their parts. You can take on as many or as few movements as you want.

There's no piano at this event (unless you bring an electric....). Just strings and winds.
