Chamber Music Albuquerque is a supporting presenter of a livestream concert by Anthony McGill, clarinet, and Anna Polonsky, piano, to be broadcast on Friday, June 26, at 6pm Mountain Time. The program will include works of Florence Price, Leonard Bernstein, James Lee III and Carlos Guastavino. The "doors" to the virtual concert hall will open at 5:30pm. There will be a pre-concert conversation between Mr. McGill and Thomas Holt, Professor of American History and African-American History at the University of Chicago, at 5:35pm.
Anthony McGill was actually scheduled to perform for CMA on June 21, but (as noted below) his concert was cancelled because of the pandemic. CMA is glad to be able to present Mr. McGill to our audience by this electronic means instead.

Chamber Music Albuquerque has cancelled its final concert of the 2019-2020 season, which was to have been a performance by the Pacifica Quartet with Anthony McGill on June 21. This concert has been cancelled because of the continuing COVID-19 pandemic. We greatly regret that we cannot present these extraordinary artists.
This was the third concert this season that CMA cancelled because of the continuing public health emergency, after the Rachel Barton Pine recital that had been scheduled for March 15, and the Junction Trio, scheduled for April 19. Tickets for all three of these concerts have been refunded.
Please see our Events/Features page for information about our 2020-2021 season, when we hope to return to public presentations of the world's finest chamber music ensembles.
