Musica Marin International Chamber Music Festival

Musica Marin invites you to partake in our inaugural International Chamber Music Festival, a three-day festival promising stunning settings, exquisite food, and chamber music that is both intimate and profound

An International Chamber Music & Culinary Experience

For over four years, Musica Marin’s concerts, grants and programs have touched many lives, from young musicians to the young at heart.

It has been a natural progression to create the first annual Musica Marin International Chamber Music Festival, a multi-day experience that embodies the purpose and passion behind the organization. Artistic Director Ruth Kahn seeks to create and expand upon the intimate, sensory-rich environments of Musica Marin’s ongoing concert performances by incorporating the town’s unique venues and stunning locales into the Festival schedule.

We invite music and culinary lovers from near and far to share in this unique event. Musical and culinary talent from across the country and around the globe will be present throughout the entire weekend for this interactive multi-day celebration.
