In July, 2020, Spruce Peak Chamber Music Society launched a three-week series of Conversations between Spruce Peak Chamber Music Society Artistic Director Jia Kim and some of the musicians who have played on the Spruce Peak Arts stage over the course of our first two seasons. Learn how each musician is navigating this unusual time, about their artistic pursuits, and get to hear them perform!
Conversations are available to the public through Spruce Peak Arts’ YouTube Channel throughout the month of July. Reservations must be made in advance at SprucePeakArts.org. Although these films are FREE, if you would like to donate to the Spruce Peak Chamber Music Society, become a member or sponsor an artist, we extend our gratitude for your support! Donations can be made HERE.
