The Amaryllis Chamber Ensemble - Bonnie Cochran, Flute - Melissa Bull, Violin - Kate Marsch, Cello - Leanne Rabesa, ViolaThe Amaryllis Chamber Ensemble strives to promote the arts through concert presentations. We typically program a variety of styles of music for our concerts. We aim to connect with our audience through our music as well as educate them about the music they are hearing. From standard pieces of the chamber music repertoire to outstanding works by living composers to singable opera arias and lively tangoes, our aim is to engage the audience and perhaps introduce them to something new. To see a listing of our previous programs, please visit our Past Performances webpage.

Our instrumentation varies depending upon the repertoire chosen for the concert. As a concert presenter, you may choose the instrumentation that suits your needs. Our concerts always use a mixture of woodwinds and strings, from flute and harp duos to trios of flute, viola, harp or flute, violin, cello, to flute quartets (flute, violin, viola, cello).

Please contact The Amaryllis Chamber Ensemble for a list of prices. The fee charged by The Amaryllis Chamber Ensemble covers expenses for travel and the salary of the musicians. If you have any questions or would like a press packet and demo cd, please contact us at amaryllis(AT)amaryllisboston.com.

"The Amaryllis Chamber Ensemble played with remarkable sensitivity, grace, and charm. Hearing young musicians play with such confidence and poise was an inspiring experience for our school's music students. The general public also greatly enjoyed the performance, offering extended applause and demanding several call-backs."
--Delvyn Case, Artistic Director, Musica Eclectica Concert Series

"The Amaryllis Chamber Ensemble" has performed as part of our concert series several times their programs ranging from the classical repertoire to challenging contemporary pieces. Each performance has enhanced their considerable reputation with our audience and has proven them to be one of the more innovative, and interesting groups on the music scene.
--Thom Roach, Director of Programming for Gore Place "Concerts in the Carriage House" Series


"The Amaryllis Duo performance was awe-inspiring and truly memorable. Their talent and demeanor are traits of exceptional musicians. Sarah and Bonnie’s artistic ability is astounding."
--J. Kriley, Old South Meeting House, 2006 First Night Boston Concert
