spoleto_100It's a milestone season for one of the longest-running chamber-music series on public radio! Chamber Music from the Spoleto Festival USA returns with new host Lisa Simeone in a series of 13 one-hour concerts that mark the final season of Spoleto's venerable and one-of-a-kind Chamber Music Artistic Director Charles Wadsworth.

The series features great guest artists, including violinist Chee-Yun, cellist Alisa Weilerstein, and pianist Jean-Yves Thibaudet, joining such Spoleto mainstays as the St. Lawrence String Quartet, flutist Tara Helen O'Connor and clarinetist Todd Palmer. It's a true collection of "greatest hits" of Charles Wadsworth's Spoleto years. Wadsworth and his successor, St. Lawrence first violinist Geoff Nuttall, introduce each work with their typically lively and self-deprecating stage commentary.

Spoleto Chamber Music 2010 is made possible through the generous support of the Bank of America Foundation, the ETV Endowment of South Carolina, and the members of South Carolina ETV Radio and WDAV 89.9 Classical Public Radio.
