Chamber Music Northwest features in-person performances at summer festival

Husband and wife team Soovin Kim and Gloria Chien are putting on their first summer festival as artistic directors for Chamber Music Northwest.
Husband and wife team Soovin Kim and Gloria Chien are putting on their first summer festival as artistic directors for Chamber Music Northwest.

The staff and board at Chamber Music Northwest decided to take a risk back in February when they committed to holding their summer festival concerts in person. That risk paid off as the festival has coincided with Oregon lifting its mask mandate and ending most restrictions put in place because of the COVID-19 pandemic. The concerts from the four-week festival will also be available online for a limited time. We talk with Chamber Music Northwest’s new artistic directors Gloria Chien and Soovin Kim about what it’s been like to welcome audiences back to live performances.
