Chamber Concert Series Season Begins October 23, 2015chamber-music-874792-480x320

The 2015-2016 Chamber Concert series, sponsored by the Grande Ronde Symphony Association, will kick off Friday, October 23, at 7:30 pm. This first chamber concert of the season will be held at the home of Lanetta Paul, 60751 Wood Road, in La Grande.

The GRSA is so very pleased to feature our former concertmaster,Lisa Robertson Lisa Robertson. Lisa will be performing with fellow musical friends James Cook on piano, Lucia Orr on viola, and Edward Dixon on cello. The concert program will include Mozart’s Quartet in G minor, KV 478 and Brahms’s Quartet in C minor, Op. 60.

The history of chamber music presentations dates back to the Renaissance, when a small group of instruments with one performer per part was held in a palace chamber. In modern times, the palace environment has been downsized and generally held in the more intimate settings such as individual homes.


Season ticket passes (four chamber concerts) may be purchased for $100 per season pass through the GRSA at P.O. Box 824, La Grande, OR 97850. Single tickets may be purchased at the door for $25 each. Refreshments, wine, and punch will be offered following the concert, a perfect way to cap a wonderful evening of music. For further information please contact Patty Sandoz at 541-963-7595 or at
