Summer Soirees

High Desert Chamber Music is returning to the origins of chamber music! We are putting a spin on our popular “Music & Friends” events and will be presenting a series of small outdoor concerts at private residences around town this summer.

These intimate, interactive performances will be held outdoors in beautiful Central Oregon settings. As is customary, our “Music & Friends” events include a one set performance (no intermission), and wine.

As a small non-profit, all proceeds will support our recovery from the economic hardship of COVID, enable us to bring high quality chamber music to Bend, and support our efforts to provide Educational Outreach programming at no cost to local students, teachers or schools in Central Oregon.

These events are very limited capacity, so please be sure to make a reservation!

We hope you can join us for our return to presenting high quality live classical chamber music in Central Oregon. It’s time to Come Hear the Music!
