The Olympic Music Festival’s mission is to present world class chamber musicians in performance of diverse repertoire for the enjoyment, enrichment, and education of our community.
The Olympic Music Festival is a summer chamber music festival with a focus on world-class performances, a casual atmosphere, and community involvement. Concerts take place on Saturdays and Sundays at 2PM, offering a different program each weekend and occasionally on each day. Performances take place at the Wheeler Theater at Fort Worden with concerts in July, August and September.
Weeklong artist residencies offer opportunities for ongoing collaboration between festival artists, culminating in weekend performances that showcase their creative efforts. Before performing, artists give an educational introduction to the program piece, touching upon the nuances of composition, biographical details of composers, and the historical contexts in which the works were written. Patrons are invited to engage with artists on an intimate level that is unique to our festival.
Now in our 35th year, we strive to curate a diverse collection of programs for our community to enjoy, including our annual Olympic Chamber Music Fellowship and Music for Children and Families. We look forward to seeing you this summer!
