Welcome to the Chamber Music Festival on the beautiful University of San Diego campus in southern California. Co-sponsored by FanFaire Foundation and the University of San Diego, the Chamber Music Festival has provided a unique opportunity for chamber music making and performance for musicians of all ages since 2006. Experienced chamber musicians enjoy the challenge of an intense coaching and performance schedule. Those with little or no chamber music experience appreciate the careful grouping of ensembles, selection of pieces, and guidance of experienced coaches. The gains from each festival surpass that of chamber music experience alone: musical appetites, self-confidence, and spirit of teamwork are sparked, and lasting friendships are formed.
Each year the Chamber Music Festival hosts a weekend festival in February – the Winter Chamber Heat (WCH), and a day/evening festival in July – the Summer Festival. Coaching sessions for both festivals are conducted by members of the San Diego Symphony and music faculty of the University of San Diego. Participants of advanced musical level may perform along with the coaches at concerts.
Since 2011, the Viol Consort Initiative (VCI) with guest artist Lisa Terry of New York has been added to the Summer Festival.
Come, and let’s make music together!”
