Chamber Music Amarillo celebrates 25 years with community

Chamber Music Amarillo is inviting the community to celebrate their 25th anniversary during a quarter-century jubilee.

The event will be held Friday, Aug. 5, from 6 to 10 pm on the second floor of the Hodgetown Stadium in the Fairly Group Club and will include food, drinks and socializing to commemorate the Chambers’ history and future.

“Each year, we do a major annual fundraiser. … The funds raised from this event help us throughout the year with our outreach programs for seniors and youth and help us with our concert production costs. So this year is our 25th jubilee as well. It will be exciting and fun, and we encourage the community to celebrate with us,” said David Palmer, the artistic director and founder of Chamber Music Amarillo.

For more than two decades, the Chamber has been dedicated to presenting intimate concerts featuring small groups of musicians. CMA has been serving Amarillo and the surrounding region since inception and merged with the Amarillo Symphony in 2020. The organization has been performing both chamber music and chamber orchestra concerts this season to record-breaking audiences since the opening of the city after the peak of the COVID-19 pandemic.
