Biographical / Historical

Since it was founded in 1972, the Santa Fe Chamber Music Festival (SFCMF) has become one of the world’s preeminent music festivals, guided by a visionary spirit and dedicated to artistic excellence and innovation. The Festival attracts world-class musicians year after year. The Festival’s inaugural season hosted 14 artists performing six Sunday concerts. It has grown into a six-week festival with more than 80 concerts, recitals, youth concerts, and open rehearsals. The Festival also hosts a Composer-in-Residence program, started in 1976, which encourages communication among composers, musicians, and audiences through premieres of Festival-commissioned works, performances of a composer’s other works, and concerts featuring the composer as performer.
