Tom Poster, pianist and composer from London, will be here with Elena Urioste. Come join us for the 22nd season of the Methow Valley Chamber Music Festival, as we once again welcome artists from around the world to Signal Hill Ranch. Internationally-acclaimed violinist Elena Urioste and London-based pianist Tom Poster will return to the Centerstage, along with audience favorites Paul Wiancko, Mara Gearman, Brittany Boulding, Grace Park and Ayana Kozasa. Hu Jianbing, China's greatest Sheng player and a member of Yo Yo Ma's Silk Road Ensemble, will make his Festival debut.
Centerstage concerts are July 27, 29, August 1, 3, and 5. Enjoy local food, wine and beer on the grounds before each concert, savor delectable desserts during intermission, and stay afterwards to meet the musicians under the stars.
Free community performances, open rehearsals, youth education programs, art displays, pre-concert presentations and afterglow parties round out a busy 10-day schedule. This year brings a new collaboration with Twispworks, with free performances at their site throughout the summer.
