Reflections on the Season - From the Artistic Director

“The 2018 edition of the Michigan City Chamber Music Festival (MCCMF), held at First Presbyterian Church, Michigan City, is one I will never forget. Our theme, “Our American Music Experience,” manifested itself in musicians, staff, audience, and our general community in ways I could have never imagined.”
