Methow Valley Chamber Music Festival

The Methow Valley Chamber Music Festival’s mission:  Promote the appreciation of chamber music in the Methow Valley. We do that with concerts, free performances, lectures, open rehearsal and the personal contact that naturally occurs between the audience and artists at these events.

The annual Summer Concert Series comprises ten days of music, including five major concerts. No two are alike. Each performance includes some music that is familiar, mixed with a little that is new, all accentuated with the virtuosic fireworks of first-class, dazzling performances by musicians from all over the nation, including the best of the Northwest. Artistic director Kevin Krentz creates musical programs that are both powerful and elegant, resonating with audience members on a very personal level.

Join us at Signal Hill Ranch in the beautiful Methow Valley this summer for an evening rich with superb music, local wine and hors d’oeuvres.

Festival concerts occur on President’s Day weekend, and in the summer for ten days beginning the fourth Thursday in July.

Our grounds open early for socializing, and stay open late so you can meet the musicians.
