Stein Chamber Music Festival

Stein Chamber Music Festival

For performers and chamber music enthusiasts alike – join us for some wonderful music.

About the Stein Chamber Music Festival

2022 marked the 46th Stein Chamber Music Festival, a musical celebration that gives area musicians an opportunity to perform and enjoy chamber music. The Festival was created in 1975 to honor the memory and accomplishments of Joseph Stein, long-time Belmont resident and music supporter. The Festival now also honors his wife, Lise Stein, who passed away in 2007. The Steins’ love of chamber music lives on in this spectacular evening.

The festival includes music of all genres performed by musicians of all ages, ranging in abilities from beginning students to amateurs and professionals. Each year the Festival is exciting, enjoyable, and always exceptional. We have had a wonderful contingent of younger performers in the past, and we encourage more to join in this year as well.

This festival is open to the public to attend, we are also livestreaming it on our Facebook and YouTube pages.

2022 Festival Details

The Festival is open to chamber students and musicians of all ages and levels of proficiency! String music is particularly encouraged. Remember – even a duet is considered chamber music!

Please use this link to sign up to participate in the festival by January 31, 2022.

Your music selection should be well prepared and last approximately 6 minutes.

Please request a first choice performance time (either 5:30 or 7:00 pm) that works best for your group. We will do our best to honor requests for specific performance times. (Students will be placed based roughly on age and level.)

Please note: Typically we hold a potluck dinner in between concerts. If indoor mask mandates remain in place, there will be no food served this year.
