Insight Music: Contemporary Classical In Sacramento

The chamber music ensemble Citywater.


What is the sound of contemporary classical music? This month’s edition of Insight Music explores that question through three very different groups.

  • The chamber music ensemble Citywater has been playing in Sacramento for more than a decade on the cutting edge of contemporary classical. 
  • The all-female choral ensemble Vox Musica, breaking boundaries with unique collaborations.
  • Romayne Wheeler, a concert pianist who fuses western classical with the indigenous music of Mexico.
