NEXUS Chamber Music Chicago is planning first-class musical events in unconventional venues in and around Chicago, deconstructing the traditional barrier between audience and performer. Their first summer 2018 performance will take place at the ever-popular Buzz Coffee Roaster cafe.

The same program will be repeated on Wednesday, August 22 at the Whiner Beer Company taproom and on Friday, August 24 in Guarneri Hall.

NEXUS is a collective of emerging musical artists from around the world who are committed to introducing great chamber music to new audiences.
