The Gabriel Chamber Ensemble,now celebrating its 30th season in Schuylkill County, is a Non-Profit Organization, dedicated to present high quality performances of chamber music repertoire. Professional guest artists are frequently invited to join the Ensemble in order to offer a wide selection of chamber music masterpieces. GCE delights its audiences with its informative and fun presentations, its quality of performance, and its informality. All concerts are followed by a reception in the lobby, where the audience can meet the GCE members and discuss the evening.
The GCE has been successfully received in Maryland, New Jersey, Vermont, and Atlanta, Georgia.
In addition to its artistic achievements, GCE has initiated community and educational outreach programs to develop chamber music audiences and the musicians of the future. And to further its mission, the Ensemble created the Gabriel Youth Orchestra to provide an opportunity for middle and high school students from throughout the region to play in a professionally managed and conducted setting.
