About

The Kingston Chamber Music Festival, now preparing for its 31st anniversary season in 2019, 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.

Successful School Outreach with Clancy Newman

Huge thanks to Clancy Newman for a very successful week of outreach to 12 Rhode Island elementary and middle schools and a performance at South Kingstown's Fiddle Fest on April 3. Clancy and his "Popped-Unpopped" series were huge hits with the kids. Listen to some of these compositions on his website. KCMF's school outreach program dates back to the beginning of the festival and continues to be an important component of the Festival. Next year, we hope to expand our programming to provide continuing engagement with strings students at area schools for a full year. 


First Master Series Concert was a Success

KCMF held its first concert in Providence in many years at the Music Mansion on Saturday April 6. Natalie Zhu and Clancy Newman played for a full house, and the audience was dazzled by their performances of sonatas by Beethoven and Mendelssohn as well as four pieces from Clancy's "Popped-Unpopped" series. This concert was the first of KCMF's new "Master Series," which will consist of several concerts, performed by Kingston musicians, and held at different venues throughout Rhode Island during the year.
