MISTRAL, about to begin its 19th season, was founded as “Andover Chamber Music” in 1997, by flutist Julie Scolnik and her husband, physicist Michael Brower. Since then, MISTRAL has presented approximately 10-12 concerts a year primarily in the New England area. They currently perform a regular series in both Andover and Brookline. They have been invited to perform by presenters across the country.
Founded in 1997, the Boston-based Walden Chamber Players has garnered a reputation for being one of the most exciting and versatile chamber groups performing today. Critics have hailed its performances of everything from Bach to Schoenberg, and Chamber Music America Magazine raves: “A season spent with the Walden Chamber Players is a time for discovery." The success of its performances, recordings and educational curricula has earned it a place as one of the most sought-after chamber ensembles in the United States.
