Intro

The Mother Lode Friends of Music is the premiere organization of classical music performances in the central region of California’s historic gold country. Founded in the early 1990s, the organization presents several concerts of chamber music each season and at least one performance by the Orchestra of the Mother Lode Friends of Music. Each season includes one or more “house concerts” wh ere music is performed in beautiful homes in the region, followed by a food and wine service. Most of the concerts are presented in Amador and Calaveras counties. Occasionally, the organization complements its regular concert series with special events. These have included performances of Prokofiev’s Peter and the Wolf with the Sacramento Ballet, a fully stage performance of Menotti’s Amahl and Night Visitors, a program of Baroque choral music, and even a concert of the contemporary rock group the Family Crest. Supported by the dues and donations of its members, the organization offers several of its concerts to the general public without admission charge.
