DOCHA, DOWNTOWN CHAMPAIGN’S FREE CHAMBER MUSIC FESTIVAL

DoCha, downtown Champaign’s free chamber music festival, announces its fifth season, April 11-13, 2014. All events will take place at the Orpheum Theatre as part of DoCha’s partnership with the Orpheum Children’s Science Museum. All events continue to be free and open to the public. Committed to the idea that chamber music can and should be enjoyed by all people, DoCha’s festival events will be fun-spirited, informal, engaging, collaborative, and educational. Food and beverages will be sold at each evening event. Tables and chairs will be set cabaret style around the centrally-placed stage allowing guests to experience the live music performances up close while enjoying refreshments.
The festival will feature some of Champaign’s own world-class, internationally acclaimed musicians, scholars, and music educators as well as visiting artists and gifted local young musicians in unique artistic collaborations both within and outside the chamber music genre.
