A Message from the

Artistic Director

of the Mason Chamber Music Festival

On behalf of the Festival Committee and all of our Patrons and Sponsors, it is my privilege to welcome you to the 5th Annual Mason Chamber Music Festival. It’s hard to believe that more than two years have passed since we have been able to make music for the good people of Mason and Central Texas. So much has happened during that time. That’s why we are especially delighted to present three performances during this most special 2021 Festival, including two Classical concerts featuring the Artisan String Quartet and guest artists and the Festival Pops performance with Javier Chaparro and “Salud.”

 

While we celebrate the opportunity to enjoy great music together at Heritage Park, the First United Methodist Church, and the Odeon Theater, we will miss performing for Mason’s students as we have for every previous Festival. We also mourn the loss of one of our favorite concert venues, the Mason County Courthouse. The first public concert ever presented at the Mason Chamber Music Festival happened on April 1, 2016, in that grand old building. We will miss the wonderful sense of history, the intimate atmosphere, and the beautiful acoustics of the courtroom.

 

Our concerts at the school and in the courthouse are significant to us. We eagerly anticipate the return of our school performance next year and the noon courthouse concert when the new building rises like the Phoenix.

 

So sit back and relax to the distinctly Latino beat of Javier Chaparro and the sweet, classic sounds of the Artisan String Quartet and Friends! The Mason Chamber Music Festival and the Odeon Preservation Association kick off the Summer season in Mason. It will be the first post-Covid performance as the Odeon reopens for movies and concerts, and entertainment in Mason starts to get back to normal. Enjoy!

Cheers, Bruce Williams, artistic director.
