In 2017 our Classical Encounters series once again brought delightfully informal chamber music performances to non-traditional venues around Burlington. A complete list of 2017 performances is given below; in early June of 2018, the concerts fpr this series will be listed at the link Classical Encounters. Each season, our Emerging Artists look forward to meeting you at these events!
