About the Stein Chamber Music Festival

Now celebrating its 45th year, the Stein Chamber Music Festival is a musical celebration that gives area musicians an opportunity to perform and enjoy chamber music. The Festival was created more than 40 years ago to honor the memory and accomplishments of Joseph Stein, long-time Belmont resident and music supporter. The Festival now also honors his wife, Lise Stein, who passed away in 2007. The Steins' love of chamber music lives on in this spectacular evening.

The festival includes music of all genres performed by musicians of all ages, ranging in abilities from beginning students to amateurs and professionals. Each year the Festival is exciting, enjoyable, and always exceptional. We have had a wonderful contingent of younger performers in the past, and we encourage more to join in this year as well.

If you have any questions, please contact Sarah Freiberg Ellison, Stein Festival Coordinator, at 617-484-1472 or

Festival Details:

  • The Festival is open to chamber students and musicians of all ages and levels of proficiency! String music is particularly encouraged. Remember – even a duet is considered chamber music!
  • Your music selection should be well prepared and last approximately 6 minutes.
  • Please request a first choice performance time (either 5:30 or 7:30 pm) that works best for your group. We will do our best to honor requests for specific performance times.
  • In between the 5:30 and 7:30 pm concert times, we will have a potluck dinner and reception. Please bring a dish to share!
