Welcome to Chamber house
Chamber House is a series of modern chamber music concerts hosted in Los Angeles, CA. Our mission is to marry the vibrance of chamber music with the modern voices and visions of composers and artists in the Los Angeles area and to offer performances of these unique works in an intimate and inspiring environment.
Session 01 focused on the quintessential ensemble of the chamber music family: the string quartet.
Hosted at film & TV composer, Brocker Way’s beautiful house studio in Echo Park, this session brings a modern take on the classic format.
Our five guest composers all make their living in film music. The fast-paced, collaborative, and time-consuming nature of the industry often leaves little room to compose simply for the sake of composing.
Our goal for the evening was to provide these endlessly talented artists with an opportunity and venue to express their unique voices outside of the screen in a personal and singular way.
To top it all off, our performing ensemble was the illustrious KROMA Quartet.
