The North Shore Chamber Music Festival (NSCMF) has been called an “inspired summer event not to be missed” (Chicago Classical Review) for Chicagoans and travelers alike. The Chicago Tribune has praised NSCMF as a "Chicago classical operation that thinks big. Very big. Internationally big”.
Launched in 2011 by violinist Vadim Gluzman and pianist Angela Yoffe, the North Shore Chamber Music Festival provides Chicago's North Shore with musical experiences of the same level of excellence as those found in the great halls of the world, but within a very intimate and welcoming environment. During its first seven seasons, over 8,000 concertgoers from metropolitan Chicago and 140 towns throughout its North Shore attended festival concerts, which were broadcast each year to 350,000 households locally on 98.7 WFMT, Chicago’s premiere classical radio station.
