CMNW Summer Festival

After a year without live music, Chamber Music Northwest is so excited to share plans for a joyful and reflective 2021 Summer Festival! They will present an array of thrilling and deeply moving repertoire, performed by the greatest artists in the world, that you can enjoy both live and at home.

Some of CMNW’s favorite performers will return, such as the Dover and Brentano string quartets, and cellist Paul Watkins of the Emerson Quartet. The East Coast Chamber Orchestra, saxophonist Branford Marsalis, guitarist Jason Vieaux, and bass-baritone Davóne Tines headline the star-studded cast who will make their CMNW debuts. Timeless classics such as Tchaikovsky’s Serenade for Strings and Copland’s Appalachian Spring will be heard alongside five exciting world premieres.

Everyone is invited to join this summer, with live and at-home performances, to reflect on the past year and rejoice with the optimism that music brings to our lives!
