Dear Friend of Chamber Music,
Welcome to the 2013-2014 season of Community Chamber Concerts (CCC)!
In our 18th season, we offer an enticing selection of ensembles featuring instruments and
voices as described in the enclosed brochure and in greater detail on our new website at the
same address — www.CommunityChamberConcerts.org.
Five of our six concerts this season will be in the sanctuary of First Presbyterian Church,
which provides free childcare so that families with young children can more comfortably
attend the concerts. The Split Second Piano Duo, March 18, 2014, is co-sponsored by the
Academy of the Visual and Performing Arts and will be heard on two pianos at the
Annenberg Presidential Conference Center at Texas A&M University.
Our first concert on October 3 features the Hermès Quartet, a young string quartet from Paris,
France, with concerts and awards in Europe and now on its first tour of the U.S. with debut
concerts at the Kennedy Center in Washington and at Carnegie Hall in New York.
Because of you and your loyal patronage, sustenance from the Gilbert and Thyra Plass Arts
Foundation, and support from the Arts Council of Brazos Valley through hotel and motel
tax revenues from the City of College Station, we are able to provide these extraordinary
concerts and additional outreach music events in local schools without charge to the public.
We will rely on you to continue your support of these community music events through your
chamber music friend contributions and by your attendance at the CCC concerts. We have
responded to our financial realities and revised upward our levels of contributions as shown
on your pledge card with this letter. We will greatly appreciate your understanding and
consideration of our request for an increased level of individual support for your new season
of fine concerts with accompanying outreach events for our young students.
We look forward to seeing you on October 3 at First Presbyterian Church to enjoy the
William J. Rogers
