The approach of Labor Day marks the conclusion of the summer music festival season, and so the local classical music scene coalesces, as regional presenters favor intimate spaces for chamber music during the upcoming fall.
This will become the dominant genre of music making to be found until next June, when the warm late spring weather invites us to share massed performances outdoors at Tanglewood and other venues, large and small.
