Now in its sixth season, Schubert Club Mix is an innovative series that takes the formality out of classical music. Audiences are treated to remarkable and intimate performances with relevant artists who are influencing the musical landscape of today.

A relatively new ensemble (formed in 2016), Chalaca explores the confluence of cultures found in South America and the Caribbean with a unique combination of clarinet, harp, and percussion. Following the migration of rhythm from Africa and Europe, to the Andean Mountains, to the Amazon…and finally, right to the heart of America, Chalaca is a celebration of the composers who have immigrated to the United States from Argentina, Brazil, Colombia, Cuba, Puerto Rico, and Venezuela…alongside the folk masters who inspired them.
