Start the weekend right with great music in a relaxed setting

 

Welcome to

Happy Hour Chamber Concerts – Online!

During this time of pandemic we are continuing our mission to bring Early Music artists and appreciative audiences together in an intimate and informal setting. What’s different this season is that we are bringing this wonderful music into your home – or wherever else you want to hear it. Happy Hour Chamber Concerts is online this year. When you purchase a ticket, you will receive a link to a pre-recorded concert you can view online. We’ll even throw in the wine and snacks! Our artists and board members are sharing a favorite recipe and wine paring you can fix ahead of time to enjoy during the concert! Fifteen minutes after the end of the concert, you are invited to an hour-long video conversation with the musicians and the rest of the audience. You can click here to get a more complete picture of how HHCC Online works, along with some FAQs that will help you maximize your enjoyment of great music.

We know the best way to experience this incredible music is in live performance, but we hope these online concerts will help to create a happy hour or two while we all work to keep each other healthy. Our thanks to our incredible musicians and our wonderful patrons for making this possible!


 

Our next concert

 

FRIDAY, FEBRUARY 19, 2021
6:00 PM MST


JUBAL FULKS

J.S. Bach
Three Violin Sonatas

 

Jubal Fulks returns to Happy Hour with three spectacular solo violin sonatas by J.S. Bach (BWV 1001, 1003, and 1005). Each sonata stands as a distinctive pillar of the violin repertoire, but all three share a common sonata structure featuring improvisation, fugue, a stunning third slow movement, and fiery finale. For three hundred years, these gorgeous masterpieces have defined the art and capacity of the violin, and they will continue to do so for generations to come. Click here to learn more about the performer. And you can click here to purchase tickets for the concert. Tickets will be on sale through February 18; tickets will not be available for sale the day of the concert.
