Live with Chicago Chamber Musicians

Clarinetist Larry Combs

Clarinetist Larry Combs

This bunch of players adds tremendous depth to the musical offerings in the city; they are Chicago Chamber Musicians. Made up of players from top-flight organizations (Chicago Symphony, Northwestern, DePaul, Roosevelt etc.), CCM draws from their pool of artists as the repertoire requires. It’s a highly gratifying outlet for orchestral musicians; Chicago is the beneficiary.

Monday’s Live from WFMT features a mix of strings, winds and piano. Kerry Frumkin hosts music and conversation. The show starts at 8:00 PM.
