This week, we invited the Rush Hour audience to join acclaimed musicians Mathieu Dufour, flute, Karina Canellakis, violin, Yukiko Ogura, viola, and Kenneth Olsen, cello, for a stunning performance of chamber music from the Classical period in Eighteenth Century Virtuosity: Music of Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart and Franz Joseph Haydn.

Executive Director Megan Balderston prefaced the concert with a thank you to the Rush Hour volunteers who help “put together” the small details that make our weekly series unique, inviting new audience members to contribute their efforts to future performances. If you’re interested in volunteering with us, please email us at, call us at 773.338.9480, or talk with us at an upcoming concert.

Rush Hour would also like to thank the Elizabeth F. Cheney Foundation for their generous partial sponsorship of Tuesday’s concert event.
