Our goal is to present the finest classical and contemporary chamber music by world-class artists to Charleston audiences; to develop new and younger audiences for chamber music; and to provide educational activities which encourage, broaden and deepen appreciation of the chamber music art form. 

Charleston Music Fest


A fundraising concert of Beethoven works performed by faculty members Yuriy Bekker (violin), Natalia Khoma (cello) and Volodymyr Vynnytsky (piano). BEETHOVEN program: Variations in E Flat Major from Mozart’s opera Die Zauberflöte for cello & piano, as well as Piano Trio in B-flat major, Op. 97, Archduke Trio.

Charleston Music Fest Artistic Director, Natalia Khoma, shares, "Ludwig van Beethoven is one of my favorites. And over the years, I've come to love his music more and more. In his music we can find all human feelings — joy, passion, sadness, melancholy, excitement and much more that cannot even be described in words. His music is pure, speaks directly to your heart and teaches you how to be better, kinder, more compassionate. It gives you hope and happiness and brings people together!"
