In late summer of 2018 and 2019, Guarneri Hall welcomed NEXUS Chamber Music Chicago to the Hall for its first and second annual chamber music festivals. Each season, NEXUS has programmed a wide variety of chamber works, from standard classics to lesser-known pieces that justly deserve a place in the canon. Co-artistic directors Brian Hong and Alexander Hersh have gathered a roster of talented young musicians from all over the world. In 2019, NEXUS also extended fellowships to two outstanding Chicago College of the Performing Arts students, who joined guest artists on several programs including this one.

Toru Takemitsu: A Bird Came Down the Walk for Viola and Piano
