The NDSU Chamber Music Festival, now heading into its 5th-Anniversary Season, brings the Fargo-Moorhead community intimate and exhilarating encounters with great chamber music performed by top-notch musicians paired with NDSU student pianists. The Chamber Festival has featured musicians from top orchestras and universities across the country and world, including Stony Brook University, the Royal Academy of Music in London, Carnegie Mellon University, Ensemble Intercontemporain, the Orpheus Chamber Orchestra, the Colorado Symphony, the Milwaukee Symphony, the South Dakota Symphony, Ohio University, as well as our own Fargo-Moorhead Symphony Orchestra, NDSU, and Concordia College.
Special guest artists for the 5th Anniversary Season include Fargo-Moorhead Symphony Orchestra Concertmaster Sonja Harasim as well as the much-anticipated return of the world-renowned cellist Colin Carr, who (among many other things) is on the faculty of Stony Brook University as well as the Royal Conservatory of Music in London. Guest artists for this season will also include members of the Milwaukee Symphony as well as other members of the FMSO and faculty members from NDSU and Concordia College.
