Happy Hour Chamber Concerts

Welcome to Happy Hour Chamber Concerts. We present short programs of really good chamber music in an informal setting. All programs (60-75 minutes with no intermission) will be in the intimate and very pleasant sanctuary at Epiphany Lutheran Church, 790 South Corona Street, Denver on Fridays at 6 p.m. Light refreshments are available.

What people are saying.

"that was a wonderful concert - it seems the perfect format too. The timing was great too - we were able to go out after the concert, instead of having to rush through a dinner to make it in time"

"enjoyed reading the program notes in advance online, and not having to read while the performer was playing"

"We are sooooooo happy that the concert was such a success - we salute you ! "

"What a wonderful venue - the Cadmus Ensemble concert was fabulous !"

“there are plenty of reasons to be happy about the fledgling Happy Hour Chamber Concerts …the music is long on substance and the programs well thought out…a great option for people who want a musical warm-up before a nice dinner on the town…." Mark Rinaldi, Denver Post

We will now sell tickets at the door!

HAPPY HOUR CHAMBER CONCERTS will host an ENCORE to its 2016 – 2017 concert season on Saturday, 6th May 2017, 6 p.m. This will not be one of our standard concerts, but rather a special opportunity to be part of a private, invited audience for a short video-recording session by one of the brightest young lyric tenors of today.

NICHOLAS PHAN (http://nicholas-phan.com) will be in Denver to sing the leading role of the Evangelist in J. S. Bach’s St. Matthew Passion with the Colorado Symphony on 5th and 7th May at Boettcher Concert Hall. On Saturday, the day in between, he will come to Epiphany Lutheran Church (790 S Corona St, Denver) to make a video recording of two Bach arias and a few English renaissance songs that will be posted on YouTube. He will be joined in this by his frequent colleague Ann Marie Morgan, who will partner with him for these pieces on both viola da gamba and the rarely heard cello piccolo (Ann Marie is also the viola da gamba soloist for the CSO St. Matthew performances).

We, of course, will be casual, relaxed, and have all of the wine and nibbles that we usually do for HHCC concerts. And there will be time for Q & A and conversation after.

To ensure the best conditions for the private recording session, we must limit the number of audience members to 70. Owing to the special nature of this event, the ticket price will be $30, with all proceeds going towards underwriting the additional special technical needs required to make this live recording. You may purchase tickets in advance by using this link, http://happyhourconcerts.org/encoretickets.html, or go to our website http://happyhourconcerts.org and click on "Buy Tickets". Or, you may buy tickets at the door.

We all look forward to seeing you at this unique and special musical happening!

Your Happy Hour hosts,
Dan, Russ, & Ron
