I invite you to attend Summit Avenue Music Series chamber music concerts!

As a music teacher, I encourage my students to let music speak to and for their souls. The same is true when I perform time-tested masterpieces or take on daring new material from modern composers.

My aim is not just an evening’s entertainment or some intellectual exercise, though neither is an unworthy goal. Rather, what I hope to bring to an audience is something that penetrates past the ear and the brain to the soul, to the human spirit that feels without words and knows without thoughts.

Experience fine music by musicians whose performances are colored and polished by life experience. Experience Summit Avenue Music. ~ Dr. Bethel Balge, Artistic Director
