CMH kicks off the 2009-2010 season with Chamber Music 101, a casual event of conversation, music, and refreshments. Public Radio’s Joan Canfield will talk about how to enjoy chamber music. Members of the Spring Wind Quintet will provide musical examples and answer questions on Sunday afternoon, August 30, at 4 p.m. at the brand new Studio 909 at the Musicians Association of Hawaii, 909 Kapiolani Blvd. Chamber Music 101 is FREE. Reservations are appreciated at 489-5038.

Since 1982 Chamber Music Hawaii has featured three ensembles – the Galliard String Quartet, Honolulu Brass Quintet and Spring Wind Quintet, all Honolulu Symphony musicians. Each ensemble presents two programs during the concert series along with education outreach programs in Hawai`i schools. The ensembles also collaborate to form a Tresemble for additional programs that feature a variety of repertoire for mixed instrumentation, which is frequently overlooked in many concert series. Chamber Music Hawaii has appeared throughout Hawaii, Mainland U.S.A., Europe and Asia.
