Considering the tight schedule it appears “The Chanber Crawl” might be more aptly named “The Chamber Jog.”

The Eastern Music Festival will take place from Saturday, June 24 to Saturday, July 29. It is centered at Guilford College but performances are held at other venues throughout the city.

The Eastern Music Festival this year will feature more than 60 performances by distinguished artists and ensembles at its home location in Dana Auditorium at Guilford College and other locations in Greensboro with the notable exception of one performance in Boone, North Carolina.

The Joseph M. Bryan Jr. Festival Orchestra Series will feature renowned soloists Gil Shaham, violin; Helene Grimaud, piano; Awadagin Pratt, piano; William Wolfram, piano; Julian Schwarz, cello; and Jeff Multer, violin.
