In recent years there has been a flourishing of small musical ensembles in both traditional and contemporary forms of classical music. There are many positives for the avid classical music buff. The repertoire offers a diverse range of musical gems, dependent on the configuration of players. With this more intimate art form, smaller venues allow audiences to be more closely involved with the music and musicians. Ticket pricing is reasonable while concert programs are often shorter, a clear preference of today’s post-COVID audience.
