Chamber Music Dressed Down I 

Chamber Music Dressed Down is Four Seasons’ newest initiative. These intimate concerts in parlor-like settings feature the same world-renowned musicians and chamber music masterpieces that our audiences have come to love, but transform the listener’s experience with lively discussion from the stage and greater access to the performers during and after the performances. Come dressed down and be prepared to have fun! CMDD concerts are part of the season subscription package.
