Celebrate the season with the CMA Chamber Music on Main Series Wednesday, December 5

Columbia, S.C. – Artistic director and internationally acclaimed cellist Edward Arron hosts an extraordinary evening of chamber music at the Columbia Museum of Art on Wednesday, December 5 at 7:00 p.m. World-renowned musicians including pianist Phillip Bush, violinist Arnaud Sussmann and violist David Harding perform works by Beethoven, Bolcom, Jalbert and Chausson.

“Edward Aaron brings world-class chamber music to Columbia in a 'down home' way,” CMA member, Joel Smith, said. “The added value of the series is that the performers make it so accessible and enjoyable - even if you don't know your Bach from your Beethoven. Kit and I have enjoyed this series and have a great time learning more about this musical form. It's more like a community party than a formal concert.”

Visit the exhibition, Mark Rothko: The Decisive Decade 1940-1950 or explore the Museum Shop before the concert begins. Doors open at 6:00. Valet parking available on Main Street. Season tickets are $175 / $130 for members. Single concert tickets are $40 / $30 for members and $5 for students.

“This opportunity for students to witness world-class chamber music in Columbia is unique and we’re encouraging all students to attend the concerts by offering a $5 ticket,” CMA Executive Director, Karen Brosius, said.

The CMA Chamber Music on Main Series is presented by U.S. Trust. Upcoming concerts in the 2012-2013 season are Thursday, February 14 at 7:00 p.m., Thursday, March 21 at 7:00 p.m. and Tuesday, April 30 at 7:00 p.m. Program information is available at
