Housing Michigan’s oldest Jewish congregation, Temple Beth El has all the stateliness of a magnificent venue with none of the stuffiness. Although the Temple has a wonderful large sanctuary for worship, the GLCMF prefers the intimate Chapel space at the Temple’s north end for chamber music.
Welcome to the 28th Season of the Great Lakes Chamber Music Festival
Despite the challenging pandemic, the Festival remains committed to our mission of bringing together the world’s finest musicians to offer extraordinary musical events. For summer 2021, we balanced health and safety imperatives with audience feedback indicating a growing willingness to gather in-person, under the right circumstances. Importantly, Festival musicians are eager to share their passion and artistry with you.
This year we will present two extraordinary summer festivals! First, June 13-20 for a week of in-person, outdoor performances under a tent on the beautiful campus of Temple Beth El. Next, July 10-24, we present two weeks of virtual concerts in the comfort of your home. Each virtual concert will include exclusive content and additional concerts beyond the June Festival.
The full 2021 performance schedule and ticket purchase instructions will be posted by May 1st.
