Happy Hour Chamber Concerts

Welcome to Happy Hour Chamber Concerts. We present short programs of really good chamber music in an informal setting. All programs (60-75 minutes with no intermission) will be in the intimate and very pleasant sanctuary at Epiphany Lutheran Church, 790 South Corona Street, Denver on Fridays at 6 p.m. Light refreshments are available.

What people are saying.

"that was a wonderful concert - it seems the perfect format too. The timing was great too - we were able to go out after the concert, instead of having to rush through a dinner to make it in time"

"enjoyed reading the program notes in advance online, and not having to read while the performer was playing"

"We are sooooooo happy that the concert was such a success - we salute you ! "

"What a wonderful venue - the Cadmus Ensemble concert was fabulous !"

“there are plenty of reasons to be happy about the fledgling Happy Hour Chamber Concerts …the music is long on substance and the programs well thought out…a great option for people who want a musical warm-up before a nice dinner on the town…." Mark Rinaldi, Denver Post
