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. Each season includes one or more “house concerts” where 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.

Chamber Music Concert Reschuled

It is with great pleasure that Mother Lode Friends of Music announces a Chamber Music Concert to be held on Sunday, March 3, 2019, at 1:00 pm, at the Sutter Creek Theater, in Sutter Creek, California. This is the concert that was planned for February 17, but cancelled due to poor weather and driving conditions. Please note that the time of this concert is at 1:00 pm, (not the same time as previously planned.) This is a great opportunity! The same performing artists. The same program. This is a second chance to experience the virtuosity of young classically trained musicians from the Mother Lode region. This concert is free of charge. Donations of any amount to MLFM will be gratefully accepted.
