Chairman’s Message

Chamber music will never be an art form that attracts a mass audience, yet those of us who love and appreciate it are as passionate as those who love and appreciate other art forms.

For me, I studied music throughout my college years but realized that I possessed neither the passion nor the drive necessary to succeed as a performer. Instead, I have used my musical knowledge to become an avid and appreciative listener.

La Musica is very fortunate to attract many of the world’s greatest musicians and it is the uniqueness of our festival that makes it so enjoyable to its many patrons.

The opportunity to attend and listen in during rehearsals is almost unheard of. Hearing a piece of music from the first time the musicians open their sheet music and being part of the journey that takes that piece and ultimately transforms it into the final concert performance is a truly remarkable experience.

That, along with the ability to interact with musicians who participate in our festival, has created an extremely loyal following, and it is our goal to continue to meet or exceed our audience’s high expectations as we continue into the future.
