First Muse: Chamber Music at First Unitarian

First Muse, founded in 2007 by RPO principal violist Melissa Matson, presents chamber music which complements Rochester's vibrant concert scene with stimulating performances by the area's finest musicians. Supported by the generosity of the Carolyn and Richard Wilson Concert Fund and made possible by many hard-working volunteers from the First Unitarian Church of Rochester, these affordable concerts also provide funds for Social Justice Ministry task forces within the church.
