First Mondays at 12:15 pm
A monthly series of chamber music broadcast live from the Chicago Cultural Center.
The Chicago Chamber Musicians give top artists – from Chicago and beyond – the opportunity to explore chamber repertoire together. WFMT’s Dennis Moore hosts the series which offers the full spectrum of chamber music with brass, strings, piano, vocalists, percussionists, woodwinds – in whatever combination the composer dreams for solo or small-group music-making. CCME First Monday Concerts are live, coming to WFMT from Preston Bradley Hall at the Chicago Cultural on the first Monday of every month.
