Chamber Music Northwest: 2024 Summer Festival

2024 Summer Festival: The Beethoven Effect
June 27 – July 28, 2024

Experience Beethoven’s SOUND, FIRE, PIANO, VIRTUOSITY, and his impact on music TODAY!

A Beethoven-inspired Summer Festival that is so much more than Beethoven!

Join Chamber Music Northwest for “The Beethoven Effect” 2024 Summer Festival! The musical selections this summer go beyond only Beethoven’s works. Instead of an exclusively Beethoven festival, the more than 60 works performed this summer will also illuminate how Beethoven’s genius generated ever-reverberating ripple effects to the world of music.

This summer’s festival spotlights both well-loved and new music by today’s greatest living composers—inspired by Beethoven’s revolutionary foundations—invigorating understanding of his legacy from the very roots of chamber music into where today’s newest compositions have evolved, steeped in his enduring influence.

Spanning the Portland metro area for five weeks, the festival will feature more than 70 of the most exceptional chamber musicians from our region and the world. From piano and horn to percussion, winds, and strings, this summer’s carefully curated festival will examine and illustrate Beethoven’s powerful impact on the past, present, and future of chamber music.

Concerts run from June 27 to July 28. For full schedule and tickets, visit
