The San Juan Chamber MusicFest, our flagship event, is right around the corner! The annual MusicFest features a small group of musicians of international renown, under the artistic direction of pianist Max Levinson, producing a number of concerts and events throughout Ouray County.

This year’s Chamber MusicFest takes place from Wednesday, Aug. 20 through Sunday, Aug. 24.

MusicFest concerts showcase the full repertoire of chamber music classics by the great composers, as well as more contemporary and lesser-known pieces.

Programs this year include an informal Classical Café featuring music from around the world, a free family concert with “Professor Wolfgang Amadeus Schmutzinberry”, a traditional classical concert at the Wright Opera House featuring the music of great Eastern European composers Dohnanyi, Bartok and Dvorak, master classes, and an intimate dinner salon concert in a private home.

Levinson, as artistic director, is a constant presence at MusicFest with his sparkling piano virtuosity. The San Fransisco Chronicle has proclaimed him “one of the brightest, most intellectually fearless pianists of his generation.”  Learn more »  Buy Tickets »
