Chamber Music Connection

Musical tour fundraiser slated Dec. 2


Old Worthington homes and businesses will be filled with chamber music and decked out for the holidays for a community tour Sunday, Dec. 2.

The fourth annual Olde Worthington Musical Tour and Open House will feature Chamber Music Connection (CMC) students playing classical music as visitors enjoy the three homes, four businesses and church that are on this year's tour.

The event is a fundraiser for the CMC, which connects children and adults who study chamber music for education and performances. The CMC meets at St. John's Episcopal Church, at the corner of Granville Road and High Street.

Two CMC orchestras will play at the church, where tickets may be purchased Dec. 2. Hours are 1 to 5 p.m.

Also on the tour are two houses on East New England Avenue and one on East Granville Road. Each of the historic homes will be decorated for the holidays.

Musicians also will play at four High Street businesses: LaChatelaine, Graeter's, Peacock Lane and the Party Studio.

Proceeds from the tour will support sending students to national contests, providing scholarship assistance and paying for guest artists.

Tickets are $20. Pre-event tickets may be purchased at Frame City, 5568 N. High St., and at Fritzy Jacobs, 635 High St.

The ticket price includes entry into a drawing for gift baskets and door prizes.

CMC provides chamber music education to students of all ages and abilities, from the earliest levels of proficiency to the most advanced.

Open to all string, wind and piano students, participants are able to hear, see and work with world-class chamber music ensembles in concerts, master classes and workshops.
