Trout Week: A WQXR Chamber Music Festival

April 2 through April 8: Live Events in The Greene Space and Live Broadcasts on 105.9 FM WQXR

Chamber music is arguably the most passionate and intimate of any composer’s output. Many musicians will tell you it’s the most fun they ever have making music. Experience the vigor of being up close to live performances by a variety of chamber groups in The Greene Space and tune into 105.9 FM and WQXR.org as we draw inspiration from Schubert’s beloved “Trout” Quintet.
