A Winner!
We are very proud to bring you a Gold Medalist winner from this year's Fischoff competition.  Founded in 1973 in South Bend, Indiana, USA, the Fischoff National Chamber Music Competition has grown to become the largest chamber music competition in the world, and one of the most prestigious classical music prizes attainable today. 
We were fortunate to book this talented group.  Fischoff winners are in immediate demand and get a leg-up for their careers.

The Mirasol Quartet of Lubbock, Texas, was formed in the fall of 2013 at Texas Tech University.  The group has earned national recognition through performances at several chamber music competitions around the country. Most recently, Mirasol Quartet was awarded the Gold Medal in the Wind Division at the 42nd Fischoff National Chamber Music Competition held at The University of Notre Dame in South Bend, IN.

The Winners!

So often, we take what's given us without much thought; we accept and take at face value the performers who walk across our stage, the people in the program, the names—familiar or not--of groups and individuals who could be from another universe.  We fail to recognize the hours and years of devotion that it took to refine their talents, the courage to present it all before a few hundred of unimpassioned faces in the audience.

They are Winners! --these few who grace that platform under hot, glaring lights, they are anxious in the knowledge that during these few minutes they will present what they have learned and labored to perfect, given only this one chance to be at the top of their skill.

Last season we gave you Home Grown, the talented who live and work among us, and this season we give you the Winners.

  We will continue to include "Home Grown" local talent, as well as invited, professional performers, in our future seasons, because we just have so much here to be proud of.  But, often, such exceptional individuals and groups escape from us to the appreciative audiences in big cities.
