Experience the works of Antonín Dvořák and Samuel Coleridge-Taylor alongside the American songs that influenced these composers. Inspired by Joseph Horowitz’s book Dvorak’s Prophecy, And the Vexed Fate of Black Classical Music Rembrandt highlights these unheralded compositions–the songs of black and indigenous peoples, and a forgotten “American sound” overlooked by many contemporary classical composers.

The Rembrandt Chamber Musicians website shares they are…..

Deeply committed to fostering chamber music education and appreciation, Rembrandt founded its highly acclaimed Annual High School Chamber Music Competition in 1995, an event that continues to draw participants from the Music Institute of Chicago, Chicago Youth Symphony Orchestras, Midwest Young Artists, Merit School of Music, and a variety of public and private schools throughout the state. Winning ensembles receive cash prizes, coaching sessions from Rembrandt musicians, and performance opportunities and participate in educational outreach projects for Chicago-area schools that lack an established music program.

In June 2015 John von Rhein of the Chicago Tribune hailed Rembrandt as “one of the more notable success stories in Chicago chamber music,” going on to say that “regular appearances by guest artists help keep Rembrandt’s repertory fresh and varied.” In his review of Tchaikovsky’s Souvenir de Florence, von Rhein praised the ensemble for its “infectious verve, spontaneity, and abundance of feeling.” Rembrandt’s concerts are regularly selected as the Chicago Tribune’s top classical music pick of the week and are rebroadcast on WFMT classical radio throughout the year.
