About the VSO Chamber Music Series

Characterized by small ensembles and intimate settings, chamber music demands excellence from each and every performer. The audience and musicians alike are in close conversation, creating an exhilarating experience unlike any other.

This season we are presenting some of the greatest chamber music masterworks of all time with VSO Artist-in Residence Orli Shaham, along with a series of silent film classics accompanied by live music just like in the movie theaters of the 1920s.
