Our Main Attractions 

Sadly, the Highlands-Cashiers Chamber Music Festival board voted to cancel our 2020 season. We were so excited to present an outstanding Festival with new, exceptional talent and old favorites. Unfortunately, the current coronavirus pandemic makes it unsafe for our audiences and musicians for us to move forward with the Festival; we must be cautious for all.
We look forward to 2021 and our 40th Anniversary Season and what a party it will be!! We have many surprises in store for you.
To those of you who have generously donated to the Festival, agreed to host a feast, salon, or intermission, offered to house a musician, or reserved tickets to any of our events – we thank you; you will hear from us personally.
Stay well - we will stay in touch through our website, email and facebook.
