A note from festival director C. Scott Hagler:

I'm excited to introduce you to the 15th annual Durango Chamber Music Festival! The festival fills a gap in the Durango music scene: uniquely programmed chamber music performed in a beautiful, intimate venue, with affordably priced tickets.

The festival runs daily Monday through Friday, June 5-9 at 12:15 p.m. Artistic Director Mika Inouye has lined up wonderful musicians to perform a variety of works for you.

We are very grateful for your financial support. Please see the links below to see how you might help out. Thank you!

Our annual music camps are back this summer with three camps: Young Musicians Camp, Durango Chamber Music Academy and Piano Academy at Fort Lewis College. Your support of our Jean Hagler Memorial Scholarship Fund will allow us to offer scholarships to worthy students. Learn more about the camps here.
