Chamber Music Gym Jam @ Amma Yoga

Come on out and relax with your family and friends while enjoying the beautiful melodies and thrilling spontaneity of live classical chamber music, expertly - yet casually - performed in the intimate studio space at Amma Yoga! Hosted by Kitchener-Waterloo Symphony Assistant Principal Violist (and former member of the internationally acclaimed Cypress String Quartet) Ethan Filner, the Chamber Music Gym Jam is a fun and unique opportunity to experience some of the greatest music ever written, publicly sight-read by talented professional players in Amma’s family-friendly environment. World-class musicians from the Kitchener-Waterloo Symphony and their freelancing colleagues from around the GTA will bring the skills and good humour - you bring your open minds and hungry ears, and your curious kids if you’ve got ‘em! BYO seating and nosh; the adjacent play space will be available for particularly restless little ones; coffee and snacks available for purchase.

July 29, 2018 2-4pm will feature string chamber music by the likes of Haydn, Mozart, Beethoven, and Brahms.

Suggested donation: $5, or $10/family.
