Start the weekend right with great music in a relaxed setting

Welcome!

We present short programs of really good chamber music in an informal setting. All programs (60-75 minutes with no intermission) are in the intimate and very pleasant sanctuary of Epiphany Lutheran Church, 790 South Corona Street, Denver, on Fridays at 6 p.m. Light refreshments are available. It’s a fabulous way to start your weekend – whether you simply like great music, want to avoid rush hour, or add something to your Friday social schedule. Please join us for a wonderful evening!
