The 2016 Summer Festival explored The Creative Journey: how the works of artists evolve over the course of their lives. We compared early and late works by Mozart, Mendelssohn, Schumann, Brahms, and Shostakovich, and discussed with our seven visiting composers their own works that span the last 50 years. We had a special visit from violin luthier Samuel Zygmuntowicz who is considered the modern-day Stradivarius and is also the maker of the violin of our Artistic Director, Soovin Kim. And pianist Ignat Solzhenitsyn, in a personal tribute to his father, the great writer Alexander Solzhenitsyn, discussed his last prose works.

Planning is underway for the Summer 2017 Festival, which will take place in the Burlington VT area from Saturday, August 19 to Sunday, August 27, 2017.

The Lake Champlain Chamber Music Festival opened its 2015 season with two performances that reveal it as an important festival on the national scene...Emblematic of how far this young festival has come in its short life, the Brahms Horn Trio in E-flat Major, Opus 40, was given a substantial inspired performance, as fine as anyone is likely to hear anywhere, anytime.

Soovin Kim has opened the equivalent of a luxury hotel on Lake Champlain, the newest link in a chain of elite chamber music institutions ... All of this (the week’s programming) created the atmosphere of a true festival, not just a concert series, and constituted a great musical gift to the community.
