What is the Basically Beethoven Festival?
Free, family-friendly concerts on Sundays in July at 3 p.m.
The Basically Beethoven Festival was Fine Arts Chamber Players’ inaugural concert series. Since 1981, the Festival has provided North Texas with free chamber music concerts during the month of July, a traditionally slow time for arts events in Dallas. The Festival features professional musicians from local ensembles performing a diverse range of music.
Every program begins with a Rising Star Recital spotlighting local, gifted young musicians, many of whom are winners of area music contest and concerto competitions; followed by the Feature Performance showcasing professional musicians from across the Metroplex. Admission is free and performances fulfill FACP’s commitment to produce classical music concerts with no barriers to attendance. Performances are enjoyed by longtime arts patrons and attendees who are new to classical music. Families with children in particular might find the Festival a good fit.
Online concerts premiere on July 11, 18, & 25
Due to public health concerns and limitations with group gatherings, the Basically Beethoven Festival has moved online again for 2021: we look forward to sharing the Basically Beethoven Festival-in-Place with you. Musicians will be recorded in a concert setting and the footage will premiere online at the scheduled concert times: July 11, July 18, and July 25 at 3 p.m.
