WCHOF Music Series

The WCHOF Music Series explores the similarities between chess and music—such as notes, pattern, poetry, and tempo—which create beautiful compositions on the chessboard and the keyboard. The WCHOF Music Series connects communities with music from Saint Louis and beyond, including works by classical composers, R&B performances, and everything in between. Purchase tickets from our calendar page and watch online at our YouTube channel.
