  • Join us for a chamber music concert at the beautiful Hess Collection, with wine tasting at intermission included with the ticket price. It's the 23rd season of Music in the Vineyards, the nationally-acclaimed chamber music festival held each summer in the Napa Valley. The festival showcases world-class artists-in-residence performing new and classic chamber music repertoire in stunning winery settings with breathtaking views of the valley. This unique combination of wine country ambiance and world class talent allows artists and audiences alike to experience chamber music in an intimate setting as it was intended to be performed.

    Chiara String Quartet
    Lauded for their "highly virtuosic, edge-of- the-seat playing" (The Boston Globe), the Chiara takes performance risks like no other: they play virtually everything from memory! Formerly in residence at Harvard and the Metropolitan Museum in NYC, the Chiara are currently the Artists-in-Residence at the University of Nebraska-Lincoln.
