DELAWARE CHAMBER MUSIC FESTIVAL INC
January 30, 2012

As a former board member and avid concert goer of the Delaware Chamber Music Festival, I am pleased to recommend this non-profit highly.The Festival is committed to offering the highest quality chamber music to Delaware listeners at the lowest possible prices. Musicians from the Philadelphia orchestra and the University of Delaware rehearse tirelessly to perform outstanding concerts for two weeks every June. In addition to performing the classics, they often offer new compositions so that younger composers get a chance to have their music performed. The DCMF is a jewel that helps Delaware to keep a high profile in the arts community.

DELAWARE CHAMBER MUSIC FESTIVAL INC
January 29, 2011

As former secretary of the board of the Delaware Chamber Music Festival, I can attest that this organization is always seeking ways to serve the community with outstanding musical productions. Each year the DCMF puts on a festival of four concerts every June, but even more important, perhaps, are the Outreach Programs to children in the community. Dedicated musicians from the Philadelphia orchestra and the University of Delaware and the wider community give many hours of their time and energy to create highly professional concerts and activities. The DCMF is an outstanding organization that helps to keep classical and contemporary music alive in Delaware. It deserves the support of the community.

The Great!

Ways to make it better...

If I had to make changes to this organization, I would...

I'd like to see DCMF team up with other arts organizations for a true festival of the arts in Wilmington--perhaps at the Christina Centre along the riverfront. I can imagine a day-long festival with paintings, sculptures, other musical organizations and opportunities for children and adults to participate along with the artists. I think the DCMF is great, but it needs to expand its audience to the larger community.
