The Lake Champlain Chamber Music Festival is founded on the idea that bringing musicians, audiences, and students together makes not only for great music, but also for a rich and rewarding dialog for all.  It is the Festival’s aim to inspire and nurture a lifelong appreciation for classical music throughout the community. We may have world-class musicians and incredible music, but what surrounds the music and the artists is community. We continue to be astounded by the enthusiasm and deep engagement of our audiences. In addition to a main summer concert series, the Festival presents Bach in Church recitals, master classes for aspiring young musicians, Festival seminars and meet-the-artist discussions, and other events. Two concerts are presented during the academic year at the FlynnSpace in collaboration with the Flynn Center for the Performing Arts. We also collaborate in the winter with the Burlington Chamber Orchestra.
