Live the Music

Ottawa Chamberfest is one of the world’s most wide-ranging and dynamic chamber music festivals. For two weeks, from July 24 to August 7, Ottawa becomes the international destination for chamber music lovers, with 100 performances and events in public venues across Canada’s beautiful capital city: from historic churches to hip nightspots to outdoor concerts on the banks of the Rideau Canal, a UNESCO World Heritage Site.

As an important participant in this international cultural gathering, you represent the best expression of Chamberfest’s audience engagement mandate. Live the music, this summer in Ottawa.
