Northeastern to host Chicago Chamber Music Festival

Thursday, July 30, 2015

Northeastern Illinois University will host the Chicago Chamber Music Festival (CCMF) from Aug. 1-8.

CCMF is a one-week summer immersion program for talented young musicians ages 12-18. The goal of the CCMF is to provide students, regardless of socioeconomic background, opportunities for musical growth and development.

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 are in the Recital Hall on the Main Campus, 3701 W. Bryn Mawr Ave. in Chicago.
