Fine Arts Chamber Players presents Basically Beethoven Festival
The Basically Beethoven Festival was Fine Arts Chamber Players’ inaugural concert series. Since 1981, the festival has provided North Texas with free chamber music concerts during the month of July, a traditionally slow time for arts events in Dallas. The Festival features professional musicians from local ensembles performing a diverse range of music.
The program begins with a Rising Star Recital spotlighting local, gifted young musicians, many of whom are winners of area music contest and concerto competitions; followed by the Feature Performance showcasing professional musicians from across Dallas-Fort Worth.
