Mission Statement

Chamber Music Northwest’s mission is to inspire our community through concerts and events celebrating the richness and diversity of chamber music, performed by artists of the highest caliber, presenting our community with exceptional opportunities for enjoyment, education, and reflection. 


Who We Are

Now in its 50th season, Chamber Music Northwest serves more than 50,000 people annually in Oregon and SW Washington with exceptional chamber music through over 100 events annually, including our flagship Summer Festival, year-round concerts, community activities, educational programs, broadcasts, and innovative collaborations with other arts groups. CMNW is the only chamber music festival of its kind in the Northwest and one of the most diverse classical music experiences in the nation, virtually unparalleled in comparable communities.

CMNW is thrilled to share this unique, rich, and diverse chamber music experience in a community that is also unique in the value it places on beauty, proportion, quality of life, and sustainability. We strive to give our region the chance to experience this pinnacle of human creation in a form that is accessible, approachable, and affordable.
