Linton Chamber Music Series
The Cincinnati International Wine Festival’s generous support continues to have an incredible impact on Linton Chamber Music’s ability to reach close to 5,000 people each season through the beauty, power, and fun of great music.
Linton Chamber Music provides extraordinary concerts to the Greater Cincinnati community that truly allow audiences to experience the energy of music-making in a unique, up-close and personal way. Each of Linton’s three series, the Linton Chamber Music Series, Encore! Linton Series, and Peanut Butter and Jam Sessions feature top artists performing great music in an intimate setting to engaged audiences.Visit Website
Under the artistic leadership of internationally-acclaimed musicians, Jaime Laredo and Sharon Robinson, Linton audiences experience world-class chamber music performances. Various combinations of instruments and the mix of players bring a “fresh” approach and energy to performing and programming that inspires both audiences and artists. Artists also connect with audiences by sharing their perspectives on the music and composers from the stage. Performances are held in intimate and acoustically warm settings where audiences surround the musicians and help to foster Founding Director, Dick Waller’s vision and atmosphere of “music-making among friends.” The Sunday afternoon Linton Chamber Music Series takes place at the historic First Unitarian Church in Avondale. This concert series features unique ensembles comprised of classical music’s finest individual artists from across the world, country and region including musicians from the Cincinnati Symphony Orchestra. The Encore! Linton Series features many of the same artists presented on the main Linton Music Series. Encore! concerts take place on Monday evenings and are performed at Congregation Beth Adam in Loveland, reaching a broader audience.
This extraordinary music opportunity is one of the best things about Cincinnati.

The intimate nature of chamber music makes it an ideal way to introduce young children and their families to classical music. Linton’s Peanut Butter & Jam Sessions are the only classical music series in Greater Cincinnati specifically designed for children age’s two to six. Created over 25 years ago, PB&J Sessions are unique in their format, which encourages children to sit up close to the musicians and become involved in the music-making experience through movement, dance, song and games, and also invites parents and grandparents to share the experience with their children.
A wonderful way to encourage music appreciation, expose to different instruments, teach listening skills, encourage confidence in a group setting, and a wonderful activity to share with the whole family.
