The second half of the Ottawa Chamberfest 2020-21 Concert Series builds on the immense success of Part One. Pallade Music, Echo Chamber, Musicians of NACO, Jeremy Dutcher, Alain Lefèvre, Collectif9, Ironwood String Quartet, Chambersphere – the series includes eight unique concerts featuring music and collaborations that stretch the boundaries of the chamber ensemble, and of the performance space.
All eight concerts will be broadcast in the highest quality, live from Carleton Dominion-Chalmers Centre. Each of these live concerts will showcase a 60-75 minute program and an interactive Q&A session with the artists. The hybrid performance model from the first series will continue in the Winter/Spring series.
Two pass options go on sale December 15th, the Series Pass ($132) and the Supporter Pass ($283, with a donation tax receipt of $151). Aligned with the Return to the Hall strategy developed in Part One of the Concert Series, pass holders have access to an exclusive bonus ticket option. Should regulations and safety considerations enable the opportunity for in-person presentations, pass holders may have the chance to purchase up to two of these tickets at $25 each.
