Welcome to the Fall Season of Spectrum

Spectrum Chamber Music Society is truly excited about our fall concerts. We weren’t going to let COVID-19 get the best of us, so we have gone “livestream-only” for the time being. I’ve heard from many of you who saw our first livestream-only event in June, and the general consensus is that it turned out great!

A lot of the credit for our success goes to the dedication and professionalism of the people at First United Methodist Church of Fort Worth. That’s why we are thrilled to come back to FUMCFW for our October 5 livestream-only event, featuring shorter—but every bit as powerful—string quartets and the Clarinet Quintet by Carl Maria von Weber (all performed with proper social distancing measures).

But that’s just the beginning. The people at First Jefferson Universalist Unitarian Church caught our June livestream and decided they wanted in. So we are pleased to announce that on October 26, we will present our very first livestream-only event at FJUUC! To celebrate the 250th anniversary of the birth of Ludwig van Beethoven, we will feature an all-Beethoven program that includes the magnificent Septet for Winds and Strings. (Again, we will be social distancing during this concert.) The folks at FJUUC have recently purchased new audio-visual equipment, and they are looking forward to showing you what they can do.

Unfortunately, we will be missing a key element during these performances: You. Even though we can’t have actual human bodies in the seats, we think we’ve found the next best thing: Cardboard cutouts of our fans! You can find out more about how to participate in this crazy idea here.

We hope that these livestream concerts will satisfy your need for chamber music until we can see each other again in person. May that day come very soon….
