The KUHF Chamber Music Ensemble serves as part of the public radio station's ongoing community outreach efforts as Mr. Kendall explains "Our concerts are an extension of our mission to entertain and inspire audiences through cultural programming. We also enjoy meeting our listeners in person. The Menil concerts are a perfect opportunity to do just that."

The first of four concerts will take place on October 8, 2007 at the Menil, featuring works of Phillip Glass, Henri Dutilleux, and Max Reger. The evening will include a reception at 6:00 pm with the concert starting at 7:00 pm. The Menil Collection is located at 1515 Sul Ross in the Montrose Area. Admission to the concert is free.
