2021-22 Concert Season Now Available

CHAMBER MUSIC WITH A TWIST

Based in Durham, NC since 1984, we strive to bring together great music with other art forms, as well as expand the definition of chamber music.

Our name is taken from the 19th century poet, Stéphane Mallarmé, who was known for his salons – gatherings of intellectuals at his house in Paris for discussions of poetry, art and philosophy.

join forces once again with their original and energetic new soul grass band, Hank and Pattie. Hank and Pattie take bluegrass and infuse it with their own flair, drawing from a melting pot of styles including classical and Motown, which adds up to an authentic and unique reflection of American music. While some of the music sounds old school and some sounds fresh and new, their overall musicianship, vocal harmonies, impassioned delivery, and innovative arrangements captivate all generations of music lovers. Hank and Pattie are backed by an all-star band comprised of Carolina musicians Stevie Martinez on Bass and vocals and Billie Feather on guitar.
