Chamber Music Series
January 14, 2018 @ 7:00 pm - 8:00 pm
The Chamber Music Series at the sanctuary on the Collierville Town Square is celebrating its Fifth Anniversary. The more than 100-year-old Collierville United Methodist sanctuary is an ideal venue for the intimate musical settings presented by both vocal and instrumental artists. The interior hand-carved wood ceiling and walls provide a unique acoustical atmosphere for the performers and an aesthetically pleasing surrounding for the audience.
