Salt Spring Chamber Music Festival

Performances: July 22nd & 23rd, 2016

What started in 1998 as an instant love affair with an idyllic and artistically inspiring gulf-coast island continues to this day as an international celebration of one of life’s noblest pursuits – chamber music.

The Salt Spring Chamber Music Festival brings distinguished young musicians from near and far to ArtSpring, the Island’s Arts Centre*, for “an immersive week of music-making that includes masterclasses, coaching, string orchestra and chamber music showcase”. To close the festival, ArtSpring hosts 2 incredible live performances. Expect new works as well as great masterpieces. Artists in residence (faculty members) this year include cellist Brian Yoon.

*ArtSpring is located downtown Ganges, a few minutes walk from Mariner’s Loft.
