2019 Chamber Music Festival

2019 Chamber Music Festival

October 8th, 2018


The McKnight Center for the Performing Arts is excited to announce its second concert series in February 2019 — The McKnight Chamber Music Festival — tickets on sale Thursday, November 1, 2018


The McKnight Center’s inaugural Chamber Music Festival was a huge success and attendees are still talking about the incredible musical experiences. We are excited to continue the momentum as we prepare for the McKnight Center’s opening in October 2019.

We look forward to returning to Tulsa, Oklahoma City and Stillwater — and are excited to add Dallas to our schedule with intimate soirée performances, combining great music and incredible food and wines. Our second Chamber Music Festival will feature several returning and new artists. Musicians will include Alexander Kerr, violin, Tara Helen O’Conner, flute, as well as Geoff Nuttall, violin, Owen Dalby, violin, Lesley Robertson, viola, and Christopher Costanza, cello, members of the famed St. Lawrence Quartet. Our elegant Artistic Director and pianist, Anne-Marie McDermott, will once again be at the helm of this formidable Chamber Music Festival. Education is at the heart of the series, with a youth concert offered to area school students, as well as numerous learning opportunities for OSU students through masterclasses. A free community concert is offered to all and caps off the Stillwater experience.

Please consider joining us as a patron and/or sponsor for our second Chamber Music Festival, as we continue to demonstrate the power of world-class music. All concerts are open to the public and sponsors except as indicated.
