25 Years of Chamber Music in the Methow Valley

The Methow Valley Chamber Music Festival will celebrate its 25th season in 2020. The success of the Festival is a tribute to the vision of its early founders and the dedication of the current board and staff.

Summer Centerstage concerts will run June 18 to 28, along with other concerts and parties to celebrate the season.

Thrilling Artists

The Festival brings together talented, high-energy professional musicians who are exciting to watch and inspiring to hear. Our musicians are winners of national and international performance awards. Many hold positions in major symphony orchestras, while others have built careers as soloists.

Unique Concerts

From Beethoven to Bohemian Rhapsody, each Centerstage concert mixes familiar, new and flamboyantly virtuosic chamber music. The string instruments are accented with horn, percussion, woodwind or voice to create a distinctive program, expertly curated by Artistic Director Kevin Krentz.

Breathtaking Setting

The Festival resides at Signal Hill Ranch, a secluded 400-acre estate nestled at the base of the Cascade Mountains in the Methow Valley. An intimate concert hall, picnic grounds, local food and beverages at the outdoor Ice House, and ample parking are just a few of the surprises that await you this summer.

Festival Prologue Video

Each Centerstage concert begins with a prologue for 8 strings and narrator, with words by Weston Gaylord and music by Paul Wiancko. This rendition was recorded live at the Summer Festival.

It’s magical. Classical music performed by virtuoso musicians in the intimate setting of Signal Hill Ranch, overlooking the mountains and meadows of the beautiful Methow Valley. Music soars while a golden sunset fades to a diamond-lit sky. What could be better?
