The Chamber Festival is presented each Spring featuring student, faculty, and professional groups. Various musical styles and genres, spanning centuries, are performed. The Music Department is committed to promoting contemporary works. Original compositions by students and faculty are also debuted.
The Department of Music invites special guest artists to UMW to perform at the Chamber Festival as artists in residence. Artists bring their expertise to the classroom. They conduct Master Classes in performance techniques, address our History classes, Masterworks, Orchestration, and Senior Seminar classes. Time is also spent with students in informal settings. The capstone of the Festival is the performance by the visiting artists.
