Chamber Music Society of Fort Worth presents CMSFW Goes Virtual
The Chamber Music Society of Fort Worth will present three virtual concerts to replace ones that were canceled due to the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic. The concerts, which will be recorded at the Modern Art Museum of Fort Worth, can be accessed on YouTube Premiere. In addition to the concerts, there will be Pre-Concert Conversations with Laurie Shulman and Gary Levinson.
The concerts are programmed to begin at 2 pm, with the Pre-Concert Conversation beginning at 1:30 pm. Because the concerts are prerecorded, a new feature will allow viewers to chat with the artists or express a thought about the music and/or the artists during and after the concert. The Chat Box is located on the right-hand side of the screen.
