About Us:

Token Creek Chamber Music Festival, established in 1989, takes place annually late in August at the sylvan summer retreat of John and Rose Mary Harbison, who serve as the Festival's artistic directors. Spanning a little over a week, Festival events include concerts, lecture-recitals, open rehearsals, and forums.

This distinguished series, "one of the most important annual classical musical events in Madison" (The Capital Times), has become known for its unique and imaginative programming, an impressive roster of artists, the welcoming beauty of the unique performance space, and a passionate commitment to artistry of the highest integrity. The Festival strives to create an atmosphere that fosters earnest interaction between performers, audience, and the music itself, appreciated equally by those new to chamber music and by connoisseurs who value the intimacy and intensity of the music experience. The beautiful rural setting, with nearby Token Creek meandering through wooded glades and abundant flower gardens, the unique and intimate performance space in the comfortably rustic barn that serves as recital hall, the distinctive programming vision that characterizes the choice of artists and repertoire each year, and the exceptionally high quality of the musicians who perform here - these offer an altogether enchanting, richly rewarding, and quite unforgettable chamber concert experience.
