Chamber Music Fest a real treat

This Saturday, Aug. 13, the Michigan City Chamber Music Festival starts its 15th season. More than a week of performances by Emmy and Grammy award-winning musicians and soloists will be held at the First Presbyterian Church on 9th and Washington Streets.

We are proud to be a part of the renaissance of the Uptown Arts District. With eight concerts — including three for kids — this entirely free program is brought to you by a group of dedicated volunteers. Virtually everything, other than honoraria for the more than 10 musicians and soloists from across the nation, is provided by innumerable friends of our community.

You'll find many of these delightful and gifted performers with their families — who rave about Michigan City every year they visit — in the library, coffee shops, shopping destinations, the beach, art galleries, our many tourist attractions and restaurants. They are loyal visitors and ambassadors for our vibrant community and are dedicated to our enjoyment.

Why does Michigan City have a "vibe?" It's partly because we host this and many excellent programs throughout the year.

Check out to see the schedule and be there for opening night at 7 p.m. Saturday. Meet the artists at the post-performance receptions.

And, don't stay away because you think chamber music is not your thing: This isn't your mother's chamber music festival.

You'll be floored!
