For CCCMF’s 2019 Season Finale Concert in Rayne Memorial United Methodist Church’s historic Sanctuary, Ensemble-in-Residence the Manhattan Chamber Players will give a rich, varied program of music written in Europe during first half of the 20th century.  An exciting yet fearful time, ever-increasing Nationalism extended to the musical world, creating far greater variety in compositional style from country to country, but the constant threat of war (or the actuality of it) also gave much music from this period a visceral immediacy.  Join us for this exciting program!
