Our mission is to share classical music in a relaxed atmosphere in order to encourage meaningful conversation between performers and audience members. We break down the Fourth Wall to allow for personal connections with the music. Chamber Brews welcomes music lovers of all levels and tastes.
Chamber Brews is a collaborative chamber music project that features some of the best and most creative musicians in Columbus, OH. We host events in accessible venues with killer musicians for a unique experience of music, food, beer, coffee, and conversation. We perform movements of works interspersed with talking, providing context and the musician’s perspective.
DEVIN COPFER is co-founder, director, and violinist of Chamber Brews, a new music performance series committed to breaking down the fourth wall in classical concerts. She also serves as violinist in Columbus’ new Janus String Quartet with the professor of cello at the Ohio State University Mark Rudoff, violist Nancy Nehring, and violinist Leah Anderson. Janus recently performed with BalletMet in their fall 2019 series BeMoved.
Devin is currently serving as Assistant Concertmaster in the Newark Granville Symphony Orchestra, and as Principal Second violinist with the McConnell Arts Center Chamber Orchestra and Opera Project Columbus. In her freelance performing career, she has worked with the Central Ohio Discovery Ensemble, the Ohio Song Project, Columbus Dance Theater, the Columbus Museum of Art, Ohio Wesleyan University, the Ohio State University, Capital University, and the Wexner Center for the Arts.
ELISABETH JEREMICA is native to the Seattle area: home to beautiful vistas and delicious brews. At some point, she obtained way too many degrees in cello performance, just to force others to call her “Dr.” She is a freelance cellist and a private cello instructor based in the Columbus, OH area. Outside of the music studio Elisabeth is a devoted yogi and less-devoted warm-weather cyclist, as well as passionate baker and beer snob.
Chamber Brews is comprised of a rotating ensemble of creative minds to perform as well as develop each program. Below are our past artistic collaborators:
Tom Fetherston, violin & advisor
Violinist for Quartet Revolution and Sounds of war, and ongoing artistic advisor.
Brad Walsh, oboe
Oboist for the Mozart Quartet at Wild Goose, May 2016.
Dr. Anna Gawboy, Speaker
Speaker for Sight of Sound at CCAC
Our community partners provide the space, platform, and neighborhood support that we need to create events in Columbus.
