Chamber Music Northwest (CMNW) brings their 52nd annual festival, entitled Inspirations & Influences, to multiple venues across the Portland metro area for five weeks of programming. With 28 mainstage concerts and dozens of free community concerts and performances, the dynamic festival brings music from around the globe, with an array of world-renowned musicians to match, to Portland.
Artistic Directors Gloria Chien and Soovin Kim say, “Our world is full of beautifully diverse cultures that are interconnected in remarkable ways. The exchange of ideas between people from different parts of the world has created a vibrant musical fabric that today’s composers continue to use in their fresh creations. Throughout our 2022 Summer Festival, Inspirations & Influences, we will explore and celebrate ways in which composers are impacted by their peers while retaining their own distinct voices. Composers and their pieces will often ‘talk’ to each other on these programs.”
The Summer Festival features nearly 100 of the finest chamber musicians in the world—from string and saxophone quartets to renowned soloists—performing a wide variety of compositions—from classics to new works—by some of today’s great living composers and with musical influences from across the globe.
