Festival

March 12–19, 2017

When you love music, the opportunity to experience all a genre offers within a short period is significant and memorable. The juxtaposition of well-known pieces and faces with unexplored compositions and musicians forges connections you did not know existed and leaves you feeling elevated.

The 24th Tucson Winter Chamber Music Festival demonstrates the power and drama of chamber music. Artistic Director Peter Rejto presents a thoughtful series of concerts over the course of a week, a program that reveals the full range of the skill and artistry of world-class musicians. Open rehearsals, a youth concert, master classes, and a gala dinner and concert offer rare opportunities to go behind the scenes.
