Spectrum Chamber Music Society
Enjoy an evening of classical music in an intimate setting with Spectrum Chamber Music Society. Spectrum Chamber Music Society begins this eclectic program with the dramatic energy of Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart’s Adagio and Fugue, followed by a beautiful depiction of young love in Anton Webern’s Langsamer Satz. It ends with a relatively unknown gem by turn-of-the-20th-Century composer Samuel Coleridge-Taylor.
Spectrum Chamber Music Society is the oldest continually-operating series of professional chamber music performances in Fort Worth. The majority of its members also perform in the Fort Worth Symphony Orchestra and frequently feature artist-faculty members of local universities, members of other area orchestras and wind ensembles, and other solo artists.
