Airs Monday, August 6 at 11:00 a.m. “Classical Music with a View” is the tagline for this festival in Western Washington. Indeed, The Orcas Island Chamber Music Festival has both incredible music from world-class artists and some of the best views of the rugged Washington coastline. Orcas Island is nestled among the San Juan Islands and is a popular vacation destination, with excellent hiking and whale watching. The festival boasts an impressive roster of artists, thanks to the talented Aloysia Friedmann (Artistic Director) and Jon Kimura Parker (Artistic Advisor).
Airs Monday, July 30 at 11:00 a.m. Moab, Utah borders two of the nation’s most spectacular national parks – Canyonlands and Arches. Naturally, the local Moab Music Festival takes advantage of the incredible landscape and moves performances directly into the gorgeous red-rock country. The signature event of this festival is a concert series that unites classical chamber music and the beauty of nature – the series actually takes place inside a grotto carved by the Colorado River. Concert goers climb into boats, tour the river and find themselves inside the magical space where chamber music fills what critics call God’s version of Carnegie Hall.
