CMNW Summer Festival

Chamber Music Northwest is back with vim, vigor, and a renewed vitality for the spectacular Inspirations & Influences 2022 Summer Festival! This dynamic festival boasts music from around the world and right in our backyard, with an array of world-renowned musicians to match.

Throughout the Summer Festival, CMNW will explore and celebrate ways in which composers are impacted by their peers while retaining their own distinct voices. Composers and their pieces will often “talk” to each other on these programs: Claude Debussy’s harmonic liberation leading to George Crumb’s wildly colorful orchestration of Black American spirituals; Maurice Ravel, Reena Esmail, and Henry Cowell incorporating styles and tonalities of traditional music from Asia; and Melinda Wagner’s modern-day reimagining of one of the great works of the 17th century, Henry Purcell’s Dido and Aeneas.

The adventures they have planned from concerts to patron events and community engagement are endless. Join CMNW over the course of this five week festival this summer. Subscriptions & Single Tickets on sale now! Learn more at
