The Kingston Chamber Music Festival, now preparing for its 30th anniversary season in 2018, features many of the world's established music stars playing alongside young, rising artists. Pianist Natalie Zhu, artistic director since 2009, succeeded violinist David Kim, who founded the festival in 1989. A two-week summer series of six reasonably-priced subscription concerts is held on the peaceful URI campus in Kingston, R.I., just a 10-minute drive from the ocean. The 580-seat, air-conditioned Fine Arts Center Concert Hall at URI is an inviting, open space. A seventh concert, an annual piano recital, is held in the nearby Lutheran Church of the Good Shepherd.
