INCLINE VILLAGE, Nev. — Forty-one years and still going strong, the Tahoe Chamber Music Society kicks off the 2015 season this Sunday, June 21, with a trio of professional musicians.

Featured is Chantal Hovendick on clarinet, coming to us from the U.S. Coast Guard Band. Ms. Havendal has performed all over, and among many awards and accolades, she won the International Clarinet Society Orchestral Audition Competition in Ostend, Belgium.

She will be joined by distinguished collaborators James Winn, of the University of Nevada, Reno, music faculty, on piano; and Eileen Brownell, of the Reno Philharmonic, on cello, playing Beethoven, Brahms, and Rota.

The concerts this summer all take place at St. Patrick's Episcopal Church at the corner of Northwood and Village, at 2:30 p.m. for six Sundays in a row.

Other concerts include: the Tintabulations Handbell Choir (June 28); a piano quartet on July 5; guitarist Jason Dennie doing bluegrass and original work on July 12; a harp and piano recital playing Hindemith and Alvars on July 19; and returning on July 26, a pair of performers well known to our Society — Joan Nagano on piano and Kay Stern, concertmaster of the San Francisco Opera Orchestra, on violin.

The concerts are free to the public, and donations are welcome. Visit tahoechambermusic.org for information.
