Chamber Lab with Chris Black
ChamberLab does not respect the seeming boundary isolating “classical music” from all other forms of music in our community. One thing ChamberLab certainly respects is the level of talent, skill, and musicianship to be found in our community’s classical performers, and that is why we seek out the best for our concerts. We’ve been blessed to have members of Arizona’s finest musical organizations — from the Tucson Symphony and up, down, and out in every direction — participate in our concerts.
