BROOKINGS – The Brookings Chamber Music Society’s Fall Membership Campaign has started and its 2021-22 season opens on October 14.
The BCMS works closely with the South Dakota State University School of Performing Arts to present the best in chamber music for the enjoyment of the Brookings community. All events take place at the Oscar Larson Performing Arts Center on the SDSU campus.
The season begins with the Dakota String Quartet, which has hosted concerts and workshops in a five-state region. The 7:30 p.m. concert on October 14 features people performing as string conductors in the South Dakota Symphony Orchestra when not playing as a string quartet.
The Fourth Wall Ensemble performs at 2:30 p.m. on November 7. This group explores a new hybrid of the performing arts in which expertly trained musicians also dance and perform while playing. BCMS is working with the Brookings Arts Council to host the group for a multi-day residency at Brookings.
Finally, the Founders Recital Hall organ will be presented on January 23 at 2:30 p.m. by Gregory Hand, organ professor at the University of Iowa. Hand, who once performed on campus, was also the chapel organist at Northwestern University.
Season passes are available by calling the SDSU School of Performing Arts at 605-688-5187. An adult season pass is $ 50 and includes all three concerts. A family membership is available for $ 100 and includes four tickets for each concert.
