“To stop the flow of music would be like the stopping of time itself, 
incredible and inconceivable.”

-Aaron Copland, American Composer

 

Russian River Chamber Music is committed to our community and has spent over a year evolving. In addition to a new concert season, we are proudly supporting a music education program for youth called the Overture Project and we are sponsoring two incredible endeavors – a documentary film series called “What’s Up Doc Films” which raises funds for our ed program and “Konteh Kunda – School of Music in Gambia.” Konteh Kunda was co-founded by Steve Pile, a local Healdsburg resident. The goals of this school include providing music education for the youth of Gambia and preserving their cultural heritage.

The Overture Project launched in October of 2011. Our goal is to provide instruments and lessons to all of Healdsburg’s kids, especially those in financial need. Classroom space has been secured, teachers and coaches are ready for the new season, and fundraising effort are in full swing. We’re anxious to put instruments in the hands of kids, provide teachers and coaches, and foster the love of music from the ground up, by building individual and group pride, self discipline and group cooperation, thus becoming a vital part of the cultural patchwork of Sonoma County.

While pursuing this new direction, RRCM would also love to continue the tradition of presenting world class chamber music in Healdsburg. Our 2014 season kicks off on May 2nd. More concerts, fundraisers and special events are planned for this year. Please continue to visit our website and Facebook page for announcements of upcoming activities. The community’s interest and financial support has sustained RRCM for over 20 years, and we are looking forward to thanking the community for that support with programs and events that contribute and enhance the cultural fabric of all of Sonoma County.
