“Music for awhile–

let all your cares beguile..”

“Music Northwest’s chamber series is a gem in Seattle’s growing classical music community. The series distinguishes itself for the quality and diversity of repertory Jane Harty (Music Northwest’s artistic director) chooses and the quality of the musicians who perform each concert.”

Zach Carstensen, Gathering Note

Mission Statement:

The mission of the Music Northwest Concert Series is to bring diverse audiences together to experience different musical tastes. Although we are primarily classical, one of our primary goals is to expand cultural understanding through the appreciation of different genres of music.

In addition we offer Chamber Music Camps for both Youth and Adults taught by outstanding Northwest coaches. We seek to provide intensive training for small ensembles at all levels and encourage low-income participants to apply for scholarship assistance.

Our course offerings also include Piano Pedagogy I and II, Solo Piano Intensives, and Chamber Music Intensives in addition to our annual Chamber Music Camps.

Music Northwest has also commissioned and premiered brilliant new works by Northwest and American composers.
