Set in the east slopes of the Cascade Mountains near Leavenworth, WA, the Icicle Creek Campus invites musicians and audience to come together for an enlivening series of musical experiences. Though rooted in the classical tradition, The Icicle Creek Summer Chamber Music Festival celebrates the diversity of musical genres for which its program is critically acclaimed:
Collage Performances – these signature concerts of Icicle Creek Music Center create a fast-paced mosaic of movements or short works in styles from Ravel to ragtime, from Bach to bluegrass, pieced together in unexpected and sizzling combinations.
Theme Concerts – these performances wrap music around motifs such as ‘Farewell to a Century of Romance’, ‘A Midsummer Night’s Evening of Song and Opera’, ‘Discoveries, Lost & Found’.
Commissions – these innovative new works for chamber ensembles of all kinds stretch/spin/play/ for the first time at the festival.
Visiting artists – these national and international musicians join the stage with resident performers on a regular basis, delighting audiences with their virtuosity and depth.
