Season 2021



Let’s come together again: Beethoven, Bernstein and Zappa!


The Rome Chamber Music Festival will take place November 21st to 25th with an exciting repertoire that features some of Beethoven’s most beloved works, classical favorites by renowned composers, and original arrangements of music by Frank Zappa, Leonard Bernstein, and hip-hop artist Bob Lennon.  Please click here to view the concert program.

We look forward to welcoming you back to the RCMF in our new venue for this year, the historic Auditorium Conciliazione.  For the safety of our artists and our guests, the festival will conform to COVID protocols, which will be posted on our website when the guidelines for November are released by local agencies.
Please visit our artist  page to meet the international roster of esteemed professional and young musicians who will be performing at the festival in Rome and for one night only in Florence on November 22nd. To purchase tickets, please click here.

Over the past seventeen years, the RCMF has grown and achieved more than we ever thought possible. We are grateful for your steadfast support of our efforts to bring the highest quality of music to Italy’s most beautiful city. Without you, the festival would not be able to perform to sold-out audiences every year and provide a meaningful educational program for aspiring young artists.  Please reserve your tickets for 2021 and consider supporting our mission by making a tax-deductible donation today.
