TCA & TCMG present Music + Chairs!
The Taos Chamber Music Group will join the Taos Center for the Arts in presenting a series of socially distanced live concerts in the Encore Gallery. These intimate 25 minute performances will run for three consecutive Thursday afternoons, beginning October 15 at 4 p.m.

TCMG cellist Sally Guenther will open the series with a solo cello concert featuring Johann Sebastian Bach’s First Cello Suite in G Major, along with some lighter surprises.

The second program will take place on Thursday, October 22 at 4 p.m. when Guenther will be joined by violinist Elizabeth Baker for duos by the Russian composer Reinhold Glière. Baker will add to the Russian flavor with Prokofiev’s Sonata for Solo Violin.

The third and final installation of mini concerts will feature a work by Indian American composer Reena Esmail for flute and cello. Called Nadiya (the Hindu word for river) it draws on two raags and was written in 2018 while Esmail was in Taos as part of TCMG’s 26th Season. TCMG flutist Nancy Laupheimer will join Guenther for this and also play a recent work for solo flute titled Homeland that address the fragility of the concept of home in times of crisis and alienation.
