11th Season

Sheila ReinholdA Note from the Music Director

Mark your calendars for the eleventh season of Intimate Voices! Our dates are set, and we are now working on artist and program details. We are very happy to be able to already tell you that Renée Jolles and James Wilson will return and join me for the eleventh straight season of making music together for our wonderful audiences in our lovely home at CSAIR. Please note that by popular demand, this season our 3-concert series at CSAIR will return to the Saturday evening time.

Last season, we celebrated the 10th anniversary of Intimate Voices. Please click here to see what we have done these past years. Our generous community supported us with a record level of donations last season, and we look forward to entering our second decade!

Along with our 3-concert series, we plan to continue our expanded outreach portfolio, offering our Family Program in a sensory/autism friendly format to reach all families, and again bringing our music to classes at the Riverdale Early Childhood Center for children with special needs, as well as continuing our visits to area nursing homes, rehab centers and the James J. Peters VA Medical Center to play for those in the community who are not able to come out and hear music.

So please save the dates and check back soon for more program and artist information, as we embark on another season of music, both old and new, beloved masterworks as well as little-known gems, all in the acoustically excellent sanctuary of CSAIR, the perfect intimate venue for experiencing chamber music as it was meant to be heard. Ticket sales will open in late July.

We look forward to another great season of world-class music in Riverdale!

Support Music for Kids and in the Community

When you subscribe to the 3-concert season series, please consider our Music-for-the-Community Package. We believe exposing children to the beauty and excitement of chamber music can inspire their participation in and enjoyment of music-making of all kinds for years to come. Our programs reach out to include all children and families, including those with special needs, through our free sensory/autism-friendly Family Program and our visits to an area special-needs preschool. In addition, we plan to continue our efforts to bring music to our neighbors in nursing and rehab facilities who are not able to come to our home at CSAIR, visiting the James J. Peters VA Medical Center as well as several area nursing homes. But to make these community-building programs possible and available for all, we need your help.

Music-for-the-Community Package
$120: includes 1 subscription to our 3-concert season series, plus a $50 donation (tax-deductible to extent permissible by law) to help underwrite the Community Outreach Programs bringing music to area rehab and nursing facilities, and also featuring our free sensory/autism-friendly Family Program and concerts for special-needs preschoolers.
