Welcome to the 27th Season of the Great Lakes Chamber Music Festival

For nearly three decades, the Festival has existed as one of metro Detroit’s musical gems bringing many of the world’s premier chamber musicians to intimate, magnificent venues throughout the area. This year, for the first time, the Festival brings you an immersive, virtual experience, bringing renowned artists to you from the comfort and safety of your home.

This year’s Festival will be our gift to the community and will be shared with you free of charge. We recognize the important role music plays at this time in our lives and will continue to do our part to uplift our community.
