The Grace Note Chamber Players, founded in 2010, is a flexibly-sized ensemble devoted to presenting programs of rare and beautiful chamber music to Bay Area audiences.  For this program, the ensemble will be joined by guest pianist Madeline Bloom in a performance of Bartók’s Piano Quintet, along with works by Bach and Beethoven. Madeline Bloom is a graduate of Juilliard and the Manhattan School of Music, and has an active career performing as a soloist and with chamber ensembles particularly in the Greater Cleveland and New York metropolitan area, as well as throughout the United States, Canada, South America, and Europe. The Grace Note Chamber Players are all prominent Bay Area musicians, including members of the Opera San Jose orchestra, Mission Chamber Orchestra of San Jose, and the Bay Area Rainbow Symphony.
