HISTORY

The Chamber Music Festival of Lexington was founded in 2007 by arts patrons Charlie Stone and Charles Thompson, and Nathan Cole, Los Angeles Philharmonic First Associate Concertmaster (and Lexington native). The Festival brought some the best artists from around the country to Lexington to play a weekend of concerts in the beautiful Fasig-Tipton Pavilion. The Festival, now in its 12th season, spans 10 days of programming, hosts an innovative Ensemble-in-Residence program, and features an annual guest artist or artists.


PERFORMANCE HALL

The Festival's Main Stage concerts moved in 2017 to the Downtown Arts Center on Lexington's vibrant Main Street! The Pam Miller Downtown Arts Center is an arts and entertainment center located in the heart of Lexington, situated between local restaurants, ample parking, and bustling nightlife. The 2018 Main Stage concerts will take place at the DAC on August 22, 24, and 26. 

CMFL also offers concert programming during the Festival at other venues including Al's Bar of Lexington, the Ashland Estate, and more to be announced!
