keep the light


REVEL believes that music is essential to our lives. Our passion is presenting chamber music concerts that move, delight, and inspire—we call them revels. This means the focus is on sharing and celebrating fantastic music, not on protocol. This means you can come as you are, clap when you feel like it, and revel in the music like no one is watching. 

We’re not sure who invented the rule that you have to sit up straight in prim rows, formal clothing, and complete silence to hear classical music. But it doesn’t apply here.

Season 7

On the surface, Keep the Light is an appealing collection of engaging chamber music programs, full of variety and promise. The series runs the gamut from revered solo works by JS Bach to vital new music for seven instruments by Stephen Barber; from the passionate Rachmaninoff Cello Sonata to prized salon pieces, art songs, and miniatures. Look deeper, and you’ll see a story unfolding that will take you from the profound darkness of the longest night to the full light of the longest day, exploring themes of mystery, love, adventure, faith, time travel, and the triumph of the creative spirit. Look deeper still, and you'll see our own story, told in a way that words alone cannot. It's a story that we all share, one of dreams, obstacles, and overcoming the odds. It's a story of hope, one that we continue to write, day in and day out.
