unstuffy, unpredictable, unmatched
“a precious asset to Boston’s cultural life…vibrant performances.”
– Robert Levin, Harvard University
Boston’s best classical musicians come together for a Jane Austen inspired afternoon in a program of works for flute and strings by Mozart, Beethoven, and a surprise finale by Rossini at The Music Hall Loft on Sunday, April 29th in two shows – at 2pm and 4pm. The Age of Reason shares the stage with the Romantic Era in a program of works for flute and strings by Mozart, Beethoven, and a surprise finale by Rossini. Andover Chamber Music, now celebrating its 15th anniversary season of bringing concerts that are “unstuffy, unpredictable, and unmatched” to the Merrimack Valley, has earned its reputation as a jewel in the cultural landscape north of Boston.
“Make a date to come to Portsmouth Sunday April 29 for Andover Chamber Music,” says Music Hall Executive Director, Patricia Lynch, “you’ll hear great music and you can try our new menu of small plates that you can bring right to your seat during the show – enjoy a wine pairing or signature cocktail. And, for the rest of the Spring into Summer, we’re serving up national, regional and local artists, from famous names to discovery acts – it’s concerts, comedy, celebrated authors at the Loft.”

What Audiences are Saying about Andover Chamber Music
“It is not just the musicians, who are marvelous, but your programming and arrangements make the concerts so exquisite. That is where the difference lies. Other chamber groups play really well too but the imagination does not come close to yours.”
“The concert was in a stratosphere above exquisite. The program was inspiring, the musicians magnificent, and the thrill of sounds that were truly celestial will be burned into my memory.”
