The Sammamish Arts Commission will host an intimate chamber music concert at 7:30 p.m. on Tuesday, April 20.

This free concert by the Simple Measures classical chamber music group will be held at Sammamish Presbyterian Church, 22522 NE Inglewood Hill Road, Sammamish. Admission is free, but space is limited.

Taking the power of music from the chamber to the people, Simple Measures offers a new kind of concert going experience. They provide themed, high quality chamber music performances with audience interaction in intimate, informal, neighborhood locales.

The goal is to make the audience fall in love with chamber music by presenting the music in fresh new ways in a house concert feel, complete with close interactions with the musicians.

Clarinetist Sean Osborn leads an uplifting program featuring composer Thomas Albert’s “13 Ways” inspired by the Wallace Stevens poem “13 Ways of Looking at a Blackbird.” Other musicians include Susan Telford on flute/piccolo; Tim Christie on violin/viola; Rajan Krishnaswami on cello; Mike Werner on percussion; and Mark Salman on piano.
