Hop River Chamber Music update

The Hop River Chamber Music board launches its 33rd annual season with organizational meetings to set up the 2012 concert season. We're developing posters, mail flyers, and the printed program, and we catch up to the 21st century with this blog page and the Facebook site at Hop River Chamber Music to spread the good news about live chamber music in eastern Connecticut.

Check out the tabs above for the dates, program selections and bios for this year's series. Visit this and the Facebook sites frequently for the latest updates as we start to rehearse for the concerts.
