The Chamberfest City Series comes to City Hall


City Hall will resonate with the sounds of chamber music as the City partners to host a series of free noon-hour spring concerts presented by Chamberfest. Concerts by talented local performers will take place from 12:15 to 1 p.m. on Wednesdays from April 1 to May 6 as a prelude to the Ottawa International Chamber Music Festival.


The popular 15-day festival, taking place in venues around Ottawa this summer, is the largest chamber music festival in the world.
