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 26th 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.
