STOCKTON — Now in its 58th year of bringing world class Chamber Music to Stockton, the Friends of Chamber Music offer another outstanding season.
These are the same artists who thrill audiences in major urban cities around the world. In cooperation with the University of the Pacific Conservatory of Music, they are appearing at Faye Spanos Hall, an ideal venue for this type of musical experience.
October 6 begins the new season with the Strata trio.
Three extraordinary musical talents: Audrey Andrist, piano; Nathan Williams, clarinet, and James Stern, violin and viola. They are in the top rank of chamber music artists, performing around the world and at the Kennedy Center and Carnegie Hall.

One of the world’s finest brass ensembles, they have been heard in 48 states and 4 continents. Winners of numerous competitions, ABQ was formed in 1985 and is the resident brass quintet at Boston University. You can hear their recordings, but nothing equals hearing their brass live.
