The Santa Fe Chamber Music Festival—among the oldest in the nation and considered among the world’s preeminent festivals–is renowned for its innovative spirit, inspirational performances, and commitment to artistic excellence.
Its radio series is broadcast nationally and distributed by the WFMT Radio Network.
In New Mexico, the series can be heard on Classical 95.5 KHFM.
Since 2005, the 13-week, hour-long radio broadcasts present performances primarily from the Festival’s most recent season, recorded by Grammy-winning engineer, Matthew Snyder.
WFMT’s Kerry Frumkin hosts the series with commentary from Festival artistic director, Marc Neikrug, and remarks from many of the players. Louise Frank is the series producer.
