Chamber Music Festival: A Weekend of Chamber Music

September 9 or September 10 to September 12

A superb weekend of world-class chamber music by extraordinary musicians will again resonate in our 200-year-old, candlelit stone chapel, enliven Eliot Hall and fill our intimate Pink Parlor in our 19th Century hotel. Join a weekend of musical bliss with the wonderful voices of cello, piano, violin, viola, and clarinet as well as a talk with the musicians.

In such settings, where you are only a few feet away from the musicians, you can see, hear, and appreciate each performer not only for the virtuoso that he or she is, but also witness how great musicians become a seamless ensemble—truly a conversation among players, their instruments, and you, the audience. There is also time to explore Star Island that so many of us call our spirit’s home, sit in a rocking chair on the hotel porch admiring the view of the front lawn sloping down to the harbor, read a book, chat with friends both old and new, or find the space you need to be intentionally solitary. See our website for bios of our musicians and for information about the 2020 programs.
