The Greater Naples Chamber and the Board of Collier County Commissioners selected Classic Chamber Concerts as the March 2020 Business of the Month.
Each month, the award is presented to an organization that has enhanced the community through financial, volunteer and active involvement in organizations and programs that creates a better quality of life for all citizens in Collier County.
The Board of Collier County Commissioners and Bethany Sawyer, director of membership at the Greater Naples Chamber, presented Classic Chamber Concerts’ Director of Development Elizabeth Lynch with a commemorative plaque on March 10 at the County Commission meeting.
“I would like to extend our sincere appreciation and gratitude to the Greater Naples Chamber and Commissioners Office for this honor of recognition,” said Lynch. “We continue our mission with pride and feel very fortunate to be part of a community who realizes that arts and culture are a necessary part of a truly enriched lifestyle.”
Founded in 1995, Classic Chamber Concerts seeks to provide world-class music for audiences in Southwest Florida; and to educate, encourage, and promote the appreciation and enjoyment of classical music. Along with a six-concert season of classical chamber music, Classic Chamber Concerts’ vision is to inspire young musicians to reach for the stars.
Educational outreach is a key feature of Classic Chamber Concert’s mission. Its world-class artists visit Collier County schools the morning following their performance to conduct a master class. This provides an opportunity for students to play, the artists to listen, and exchange suggestions to improve sound, tempo and overall technique. The experience is followed by a friendly Q&A about life as a professional musician.
This season, Classic Chamber Concerts celebrates its 25th anniversary by honoring Beethoven's 250th birthday. Concerts are held on Monday nights at 8 p.m. at the Sugden Community Theatre or the First United Methodist Church.
