Northeastern to host 2016 Chicago Chamber Music Festival

Tuesday, July 26, 2016

Northeastern Illinois University will host the Chicago Chamber Music Festival (CCMF) from July 30 through Aug. 6.

CCMF is a one-week summer immersion program for talented young musicians ages 12-18. The goal of the CCMF is to provide students and young musicians an intensive experience that develops both their solo and chamber music playing regardless of their backgrounds.

Northeastern faculty members work closely with each student during the week on developing technical skills, deepening artistry and honing their performance skills, all in a non-competitive and supportive environment.

Co-directed by Susan Tang and Jaime Gorgojo, the festival includes five events that are free and open to the public.

All events will be performed in the Recital Hall on the Main Campus, 3701 W. Bryn Mawr Ave. in Chicago.

Events lined up are as follows:

Concerto Competition
Saturday, July 30, 11 a.m.

Corky Siegel Workshop: Chamber Music and Dynamics
Monday, Aug. 1, 1:30 p.m.

Lincoln Trio Open Master Class
