The Legacy of a Vision
In 1978, Dick Waller produced and performed a chamber music concert and used the gift of music as a “thank you” to fellow members of the First Unitarian Church on Linton Street. This concert, held in the intimacy and warmth of the stained-glassed sanctuary, was the beginning of Linton Chamber Music. For 30 years, founder Dick Waller cajoled and charmed Cincinnatians and his network of musicians to create one of the most unique chamber music series in the country. His vision of bringing together musical artists and friends to perform great music in an environment that allows audiences to experience the energy of music-making in an up-close and personal way remains key to the success of these concerts.
Today, it has evolved into an internationally acclaimed chamber music series, attracting world-class musicians to share their love of music in these intimate concerts. Under the artistic direction of Jaime Laredo and Sharon Robinson, Linton Chamber Music continues its tradition of presenting the nest classical chamber music in inspiring settings. Linton also remains committed to grow future audiences and appreciation for this art form through its innovative children’s series, Peanut Butter and Jam Sessions.
