Summer Concerts

Join us in the beautiful Methow Valley this summer for an evening rich with superb music, local wine, hors d'oeuvres, and special romantic magic conjured just for you. Our doors open early for socializing, and stay open late so you can meet the musicians.

Our festival comprises ten days of music, including five major concerts. No two are alike.

Each performance in our main summer concert series (the Center-Stage concerts) includes a little music that is familiar, mixed with a little that is new, all accentuated with the virtuosic fireworks of first-class, dazzling performances by musicians from all over the nation, including the best of the Northwest. Artistic director Kevin Krentz creates musical programs that are both powerful and elegant, resonating with audience members on a very personal level.

Many of your favorite performers will return this summer including Jing Wang, Grace Park, Paul Wiancko, and Yuri Namkung.


We have one goal: Promote the appreciation of chamber music in the Methow Valley. We do that through concerts, free performances, lectures, and the personal contact that naturally occurs between the audience and artists at our events.


  • Free performances for the Methow Conservancy and the Shafer Museum
  • Open rehearsals, held the morning of each Center-Stage concert day
  • Collaboration with the Confluence Gallery "Music as Muse" exhibition
  • Free tickets for the Cove, Room One, and Pipestone
