LET’S JOIN TOGETHER TO HELP OUR COMMUNITY AND EMPOWER WOMEN
SPECIAL EVENT JANUARY 29
As a group founded and run by women, Chamber Project Saint Louis is proud to partner with Dress for Success on January 29th at our Schlafly Tap Room concert.
Dress for Success Midwest and Connections to Success St. Louis promote the economic independence of women coming from challenging situations by providing professional attire, a network of support and the career development tools to help women thrive in work and life.
To help further their mission, we are inviting audience members to bring donations of professional clothing (suits, jackets, skirts, pants, dresses, shoes, and accessories) to the concert. We know we have the most fashionable and generous audience in St. Louis so this partnership seemed like the perfect fit.
In addition to accepting donations, we will hear from a Dress for Success participant about how the organization has impacted her. A portion of the ticket sales will be donated to Dress for Success.
Together we can make an impact on the women in our community - help us make this a huge success!

Chamber Project Saint Louis bounds into the New Year with performances of our program: WEAVE. Percussionist Jeffrey Barudin will join us for the first time on this program that weaves together stories and sound. Our program begins with the telling of Hans Christian Andersen’s “Little Match Girl,” for flute, vibraphone, and narrator. This haunting tale of a small girl left in the cold and will challenge the audience with questions of kindness. In Ingolf Dahl’s masterpiece “Concerto a tre”, the composer takes six notes and spins them into a headlong flight of virtuosity to the end of the work. Taking the idea of spinning a theme even further, Steve Reich’s “Vermont Counterpoint” develops into a trance-like state that loops and expands into new territory for amplified marimba. The program ends with the rarely heard incidental music to the satirical play “Le Jardinier de Samos” by Jacques Ibert.
