About the Festival: After a year without live music, we are so excited to share our plans for a joyful and reflective Chamber Music Northwest 2021 Summer Festival! We present to you 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 Timothy McAllister, 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.
We hope you will join us this summer, for both live and at-home performances, to reflect on the past year and rejoice with the optimism that music brings into our lives!
The broadcast will take place at 7:30pm.
