The 2017 NDSU Chamber Music Festival will feature a superb array of guest artists performing alongside
NDSU student artists in performances of powerful works of chamber music. 2017 guest artists will include members of the Fargo-Moorhead Symphony Orchestra and Milwaukee Symphony Orchestra as well as faculty from North Dakota State University, Concordia College, the University of South Dakota, Bemidji State University, and Ohio University. The 2017 Festival will also feature special guest ensemble The Prometheus Trio and special guest violist David Harding.

As in previous seasons, we would like to invite you to a series of open rehearsals where you can witness the inner workings of great chamber music performance. Check back closer to June 1st for a schedule of open rehearsals!

Pianists interested in discovering more about piano study at NDSU or being involved in the NDSU Chamber Music Festival
are encouraged to contact Dr. Tyler Wottrich at tyler.wottrich@ndsu.edu.

Many of history's greatest composers wrote their most personal and powerful works for chamber ensemble. The NDSU Chamber Music Festival provides an invaluable opportunity for NDSU pianists to rehearse and perform these works with professional string players, and also brings the Fargo-Moorhead community an intimate encounter with this exhilarating music.

"I know this will sound terribly cliché, but this being the first time I've played in a real chamber group, I have to say I'm completely bitten by the chamber music bug... it was magical to be making music together with some fabulous string players and feel my sound mix with theirs."
-Bernadette Fromherz, 2015 Festival participant
