I was first attracted to the Gabriel Chamber Ensemble by its programming. They have played music from the 17th to the 21st century, from solos to octets including instruments from piano to guitar and double bass. Before and during each concert, a member of the ensemble speaks about some aspect of a composition that helps me as a listener. The musicians play exceptionally well with technique and emotion. Though I've been to many concerts in NYC and Philadelphia, the most memorable performances have been in Schuylkill Co. by the Gabriel Chamber Ensemble.

My introduction to the Ensemble in 1993 has led to an ever-deepening appreciation of the quality of the music of this extraordinarily talented group. It is unusual to find this level of musicality and passionate performance anywhere, let alone in rural northeastern Pennsylvania. The group's eclectic repertoire has sometimes challenged me to listen to music(not just theirs) in new ways and has, at other times, transported me completely with an interpretation of a piece I (thought I) already knew but whose depth I had never truly realized. The concerts (usually 4 or 5 per season) are very affordable and there is usually a post-concert reception when the audience can interact with the very approachable artists. A real gem!
