We were happy to get a visit from Lucy Tan and David Palmer this week, stopping by to remind folks that Chamber Music Amarillo's new season starts TONIGHT with a fabulous program "Celebrating Women in the Arts." The first classical concert of their 22nd season, The Heroic Journey of Life shines a spotlight on female composers—and it's one night only: TONIGHT, Friday September 13th @ 7:30pm at the Fibonacci Space (3306 SW 6th Ave., Amarillo).
Tickets can be purchased here, or call 806-236-3545. HPPR's Board President Greg Rohloff will host a pre-concert lecture with the performers at 7pm. Tonight's show will feature Natalia Korenchuk, violin, Lucy Tan, piano/harpsichord, and Jayson Bishop, cello. The repertoire includes the following pieces by female composers:
