Spring Fundraisers - May 5th and June 16th!
DuoDG - What could be a more unlikely pairing than the violin and percussion? Yet, nothing makes music more exciting than dramatic contrast—perhaps the same is true for love as well? Welcome real-life partners Denise Dillenbeck and Mark Goodenberger as they bring us music, much of which springs from their unique personal and professional relationship!
Stephen Beus, pianist extraordinaire, will perform for us
at Lake Chelan Lutheran Church on Sunday, June 16th. Those of you who heard Stephen a few years ago will not want to miss him this time! His concerts are always exciting! Again, wine and hors d'œuvres will be served. As was the case for Denise and Mark, call Karen Rich at 509-687-2421 for reservations. Tickets for Stephen's concert are also $40 each, or attend both concerts for $75.
Plans for our 32nd Season are in progress! It promises to be a wonderful Festival, one you won’t want to miss, so make your plans now to be in Chelan in 2013! The complete schedule of our 21 events will appear on this website as soon as possible.

The full orchestra and chorus perform at Friday night's 'Classics Concert'. 'Pops in the Park' at Riverwalk Park, with a lighter 'pops' program, will bring our 2013 season to a close.
