The Appalachian Chamber Music Festival is delighted to be returning to the Barns of Rose Hill for the opening night concert of our 2022 summer season. The festival celebrates the rich history, nature and culture of the area through poignant and powerful chamber music experiences that are relevant to our times. ACMF brings together fresh and exciting talent, internationally-recognized artists from near and far who are united by camaraderie and cause for an evening of world-class music. In addition to the celebrated String Octet by Felix Mendelssohn, this concert features the world premiere of Judith Ring’s Quartet “Of Woods and Water.”
