New Jewish Theatre stretches its legs with chamber music series

The New Jewish Theatre, a small professional theatrical performances in St. Louis, is expanding its offerings to include more than theatre. In addition to a full season of plays, NJT will expand its offering of Performing Arts events by offering a “Salon Music” Chamber Music Series in the intimate Marvin & Harlene Wool Studio Theatre.

In addition to the Salon Music Series, there will be a one-week summer Music Festival focusing on Emerging Artists and community outreach. The first concert in the series is scheduled for 7 p.m. Thursday, Jan. 13 in the Wool Studio Theatre of the Arts & Education Building of the JCC’s Staenberg Family Complex. It will feature St. Louis Symphony violinists Lorraine Glass-Harris, and Jenny Jones and violist Michael Chen playing some of the more intimate music of Bach, Leclair, Schubert, Dvorak and Mozart.

The series is presented in partnership with the St. Louis Symphony’s Community Partnership Program. The second concert will be March 16. For one week in late June/early July, the Salon Music Series will include a one week Music Festival of Emerging Artists with an emphasis on community outreach.

Tickets are $18/$20 for one of the Salon concerts or $32/$35 for both in the Series and are available at 314-442-3283 or at under “Salon Series.”
