(Courtesy of CSAIR) Intimate Voices, a Riverdale-based chamber music series featuring world-class musicians, will present the second concert of its ninth season on Saturday, January 20, at 8 p.m. at its home, the Conservative Synagogue Adath Israel of Riverdale (CSAIR), 475 West 250th Street, Bronx, NY.

The series presents chamber music in an intimate and acoustically excellent setting at CSAIR and in outreach events. The participating musicians have performed in venues all over the United States and abroad as soloists, as well as in ensembles ranging from major string quartets to the Orpheus Chamber Orchestra and the New York Philharmonic.

The concert on January 20 will present intimate Baroque masterworks for combinations of two violins, cello, and harpsichord, and will include music by J.S.Bach, Pachelbel, de Fesch, Rameau, F.Couperin and Handel. Music Director Sheila Reinhold (violin) will be joined by Renée Jolles (violin), James Wilson (cello) and Carsten Schmidt (harpsichord).

Intimate Voices series concerts include complimentary refreshments and an informal post-concert reception with the musicians. Doors will open at 7:30 for wine, coffee and tea, and the concert begins at 8. Tickets include all refreshments and can be purchased by credit card online at or at the door by check/cash. Single tickets are $30 ($25 for seniors, $15 for students/under 30).

In addition to its Saturday evening concerts at CSAIR, Intimate Voices is continuing its expanded community outreach, visiting area rehabilitation and nursing facilities and classes at a local special-needs preschool, and offering a sensory/autism-friendly family program free to all at CSAIR Sunday afternoon, March 4, from 2 to 3 p.m.
