Classics at The Merc is a chamber recital series co-produced by the California Chamber Orchestra and Temecula Presents. We feature an individual musician or small ensemble performing a wide range of music on the 2nd, 3rd, and 4th Sunday of each month. Our performers are all working professional musicians or advanced conservatory students.
The Classics at The Merc series is curated by Robert Culverhouse, Jr., in consultation with Artistic Director and Conductor Dana Zimbric. In addition to featuring professional musicians from our own community, our close affiliations with San Diego State University’s Adams’ Project and with the Consortium of Southern California Chamber Music Presenters allow us to present a wide range of talent from Southern California and beyond.
Old Town Temecula’s Mercantile Building dates from the 1890s, and is home to the Club at The Merc, a cabaret-style space with superb acoustics and a 1901 Steinway Model O grand piano. This venue makes for an intimate musical experience, including opportunities for the audience to interact with the performers. Wine, beer, soft drinks, and snacks are available during the performances.
Tickets are $12 for adults and $5 for students. To ensure availability, we strongly recommend that you purchase tickets in advance.
