Shady Pines Chamber Players 2019 Season

Announcing SHADY PINES CHAMBER PLAYERS 2019 (7th!) Season Shady Pines Chamber Players (SPCP) is a project of the Cox family at Shady Pines (200 Fox facing Wren in Cloudcroft). We provide fine musicians a place to gather for a conversation in music with each other and add garden and musical beauty to our beloved Cloudcroft and surrounding communities. Besides providing a cultural asset to the region we also support the Cloudcroft Schools music programs.

GARDEN STROLL at Shady Pines Approximate dates: June 15-22, June 30 – July 5, Aug 30 – Sept 7. Usually 9–11 a.m. and 2–5 p.m. 200 Fox facing Wren. Half way up unpaved middle road (Wren) to The Lodge. Explore the fairy gardens at Shady Pines. Eaves drop on chamber music jams if they’re in session. Visitors are asked not to enter the cabin.

CELLO CHANT in the Round On Saturday, July 6 at 3:00 p.m., Shady Pines Chamber Players will present CELLO CHANT in the Round in the Cloudcroft High School Commons (310 James Canyon Hwy 82 across from the skate rink). The program will feature at least six returning cellists from Albuquerque, Las Cruces, Corpus Christi and Austin. In 2017 and 2018 these wonderful musicians convinced audience members that in Joel Becktell’s words “This (all-cello) music is surprising – it’s nearly impossible to believe that it exists in relative obscurity. It’s not ‘good for rarely-heard cello music.’ It’s flatout great music”. Expect personal involvement. You will be encouraged to interact with this very personable cast. Because audience will be placed all around the musicians, you will feel you are making the music with them. With the live acoustics of the Commons area and your proximity to performers you will feel you’ve visited with the angels. ADMISSION – FREE: We need your support but want you to come $ or not. A “love gift” of $20 (or $1 or $1,000!) is encouraged. Proceeds will benefit the Cloudcroft Schools music programs and help defray production costs.

THE CELLO SPEAKS to Alamogordo and Cloudcroft music students Stay tuned for more info about this new SPCP event to occur in late August
