Fayetteville Chamber Music hosts week-long residencies throughout the year. Accomplished musicians from around the world come to Fayette County to perform public concerts in local settings and conduct free concerts for students in our area schools.

Every year Fayetteville Chamber Music presents a series of week-long residencies. Accomplished musicians from around the world come to Fayette County to perform, and free concerts for students in our area schools is an important part of the agenda. There are three sets of residences spread out through the year, each series with a different set of musician. In addition to the public concerts under the banner of Concert Classics, private educational performances are held in local schools. In the past, the musicians have taught at schools in La Grange, Columbus, Fayetteville, Industry, Weimar, and Brenham. 

“The school programs are very rewarding to us because the students show such interest in the music and the instruments. They get to see wonderful musicians up close in their classrooms or auditoriums, and these musicians share stories as well as music with the students of all ages,” comments Håkan Rosengren, the organization’s Artistic Director.
