CMW: How to keep it going?

CMW: better than ever? I think each year is better than the last, and that's saying something huge.

Are we essentially relegated to one CMW each year? Are there things we can do locally to encourage, precipitate even, chamber music through-out the year?

What are we going to need to make it happen? We have the Trout piano quintet, we have some Haydn string quartets, and a few Mozart piano quartets. Are these enough to start bringing people together? Can anyone get serious about buying string and flute music? Can we find another strong violinist? Geri, which string instrument will you learn first?

Should we start planning a recital? If we do, will we feel awkward about playing together Sabbath afternoons?
