If pop songs are the texts of the music world, then surely chamber music works are its literary masterpieces, and you can appreciate them fully at the Charlottesville Chamber Music Festival. Hosted by the Virginia Chamber Music Foundation, the seven-day celebration provides incredible renditions of classical pieces performed by a variety of local expert musicians. The music is treated like a story being read aloud by the instruments to the audience, and invites listeners to explore the deep history and rich emotion found within the melody.

Through 9/18. $6-25. The Paramount, 215 E. Main St. Downtown Mall. 979-1333.
