2012–2013 marks the Ceruti Chamber Players’ twenty-seventh season. The Louisville-based ensemble was one of two United States ensembles selected to participate in the First Osaka (Japan) International Chamber Music Festa. The critically acclaimed Ceruti Chamber Players have performed at the Master Musicians Festival (Somerset, Kentucky), Musikfest Bethlehem (Pennsylvania), Piccolo Spoleto Festival (Charleston, South Carolina), the Indiana State University Contemporary Music Festival (Terre Haute, Indiana), and The Louisville Orchestra’s New Dimensions Series. The ensemble’s performances have included many Louisville premieres of contemporary music as well as the world premiere of Frederick Speck’s POSTCARDS FOR ILSE (written for the Ceruti Chamber Players). Following the ensemble’s Louisville premiere of James Chaudoir’s Quartet for Violin, Clarinet, Cello, and Piano, the Ceruti Chamber Players recorded this work for Capstone Records (On the Beach at Night, CPS-8672). Their performances have aired on Kentucky Educational Television, the former Louisville in Concert series on WFPK-FM, the University of Louisville Concert Hour on WUOL-FM, and Lunchtime Classics on WUOL-FM. In 2001 the ensemble inaugurated its annual Sommermusik series.
Free parking is available in the Dogwood lot directly in front of the Ogle Center. Vehicles parked in other lots on campus will be subject to ticketing.
