Featuring pianists from Mexico, England, Germany, Hungary, Poland, Canada, Russia, China, Taiwan, Yugoslavia, Moldova, and the United States, the festival has received rave reviews, with every concert playing to a full house. Chopin is the master of the piano. He is credited with originating the modern piano style, and that style is Chopin’s own, readily recognizable and distinctive style. The music of this fine romantic composer is featured in the Festival to provide an opportunity for residents and visitors to the tri-city region to hear the piano played with unsurpassed elegance, power, and expression.

The El Paso Chamber Music Festival has brought internationally renowned musicians to El Paso. The Festival and the organization have developed a national reputation for artistic excellence and innovation, aided in great part by live broadcasts each year of Festival concerts on National Public Radio. The festival provides pre-concert talks, free musical ‘informances’, and master classes intended to provide further opportunities for audience members to share in the exciting process of learning about music.
