“Every time I attend a CSD concert, I rediscover my love for classical music.”
It has been noted that a Chamber Soloists of Detroit concert experience embodies the essence of chamber music. Key to the power of CSD’s presentations are its thoughtful and engaging programs for varying combinations of instruments, performed by musicians whose mutual desire to captivate and move their audience has drawn them to this ensemble. That they are recognized internationally as soloists is incidental to this intimate connection with the audience.
In the tradition of the great cultural centers of the world, Chamber Soloists of Detroit is proud to present the area’s finest virtuosi in collaboration with emerging and renowned touring artists, while advancing the global image of Detroit as a cultural leader through vigorous pursuit of international outreach and touring opportunities.
Now approaching its fifth season, Chamber Soloists of Detroit has established itself as a major presence in metropolitan Detroit and beyond, already fulfilling its mission to serve as artistic ambassador for the culturally rich city of Detroit, once known as the “Paris of the West”, with return invitations in Germany and Canada.
Led by Artistic Director Pauline Martin, CSD is supported by a devoted fan base and an artistic advisory board of such luminaries as pianist André Watts, former Detroit Symphony Music Director Gunther Herbig, violinist and conductor Andrés Cárdenes and pianist Menahem Pressler. CSD mourns the loss of founding artistic advisor, pianist Jutta Czapski, whose artistry and friendship will continue to provide inspiration.
