THE ANNUAL FESTIVAL

Each May the Fayetteville Chamber Music Festival presents concerts in the Moravian Room at the Grand Fayette Hotel (formerly the Country Place Hotel) in downtown historic Fayetteville, Texas. The audiences sit near the world-class musicians from New York, Hungary, Poland, Houston and Austin and experience the music close-up. The room has natural acoustics, bring a perfect warm, intimate sound to the musicians' violin, clarinet and piano. The Festival begins with a Friday night performance featuring Czech music in keeping with the local heritage. On Saturday there is was a 3pm matinee and an 8pm performance. The following weekend follows the same schedule.
After each concert, the musicians mingled with the audience, enjoying conversation, wine and, at some concerts, hors d'oevres. It is one of the great perks that comes with a small venue and the willingness of the musicians to interact with their audiences.
