Just a short scenic drive from our vacation home in San Miguel is a world that overflows with art, music and so much more; and each summer s no exception when the San Miguel International Chamber Music Festival brings in world-class performers from around the world to share their talents in performances throughout the city July 31 through August 22.

All of the concerts are located in the intimate comfort of the historical Angela Peralta Theater which offers one of the region’s most acoustically perfect venues.

Here’s a sneak preview of the line-up to date.  For a complete schedule, continue to check in on the festival’s website at

 Hermitage Piano Trio

Descending from the great Russian musical tradition, the Hermitage Piano Trio is distinguished by its exuberant musicality, interpretative range, and sumptuous sound.

Calder String Quartet

Already the choice of many leading composers to perform their works – including Christopher Rouse, Terry Riley and Thomas Adès – the group’s distinctive approach is exemplified by a musical curiosity brought to everything they perform, whether it’s Beethoven, Mozart, Haydn, or sold-out rock shows.

Chee Yun, Paremski, Sutter / Trio

Winner of the 1989 Young Concert Artists International Auditions and the 1990 Avery Fisher Career Grant, Chee Yun performs regularly with the world’s foremost orchestras.

With her consistently striking and dynamic performances, pianist Natasha Paremski reveals astounding virtuosity and voracious interpretive abilities.

Heralded as “one of the great leading cellist of the classical stage” by the Wall Street Journal, Wendy Sutter has proven herself as one of the leading soloists of her generation.
