Linton Chamber Music offers extraordinary concerts that truly allow audiences to experience the energy of music-making in a unique, up-close and personal way. Under the artistic leadership of internationally-acclaimed musicians, Jaime Laredo and Sharon Robinson, Linton audiences experience world-class chamber music performances by unique ensembles comprised of classical music’s finest individual artists from across the world, country and region. Various combinations of instruments and the mix of players bring a fresh approach and energy to performing and programming that inspires both audiences and artists. Artists also connect with audiences by sharing their perspectives on the music and composers from the stage. Performances are held in intimate and acoustically warm settings where audiences surround the musicians and help to foster Founding Director, Dick Waller’s vision of “music-making among friends.”
The intimate nature of chamber music makes it an ideal way to introduce young children and their families to classical music. Linton’s Peanut Butter & Jam Sessions are the only classical music series in Greater Cincinnati specifically designed for children ages two to six. These informal concerts are designed to give young children and their families an educational and enjoyable introduction to classical music. Created 19 years ago, PB&J Sessions are unique in their format, which encourages children to sit up close to the musicians and become involved in the music-making experience through dance, song and games, and also invites parents and grandparents to share the experience with their children. Fall, winter, and spring concert programs are presented every season featuring different ensembles and themes. Each program is performed multiple times in a variety of neighborhood locations throughout Greater Cincinnati.
