Our mission is to bring together the finest musicians of Europe and the Americas to present exciting programs of familiar and unusual chamber music, communicating a joy in performance to enthusiastic audiences. We strive for high artistic standards in selecting musicians for each annual festival. A major goal is community outreach to draw people into the creative process through special performances and daily open rehearsals. During open rehearsals, musicians collaborate and meld their different musical traditions as the growing audiences listen and learn about musical expression and interpretation. A primary focus of our mission is to reach out to young students, stimulating a love for music which will bring them as older students and adults to those rehearsals and performances. Through these programs, we hope to foster a growing audience for the arts.
