The Kingston Chamber Music Festival strives to present the finest quality chamber music to the a wide audience. Extraordinary musicians appear annually during a two-week summer Festival of six reasonably priced, evening concerts held on the peaceful URI campus in Kingston, R.I. Programs feature many of the world's established music stars playing alongside young rising stars. The 580-seat, air-conditioned Fine Arts Center Concert Hall at URI is a friendly, open space. Two scheduled rehearsals are open to the public, two post-concert question-and-answer sessions with musicians are scheduled, and the musicians are usually available after each concert to greet and talk with concert goers.
The Festival includes a number of other events designed to reach future and underserved audiences, including a one-week spring Schools Outreach Program that has touched thousands of elementary school children since its inception in 1990.
An Artist(s) iIn-Residence program during the summer Festival provides free recitals in senior centers, and recreation and church halls. An annual scholarship is awarded by the Festival to a music student at the University of Rhode Island.
