The Chamber Music Society of Fort Worth and the renowned Miró Quartet of Austin announce plans for Fort Worth’s first-ever Beethoven Festival, to be held Nov. 7 – 13, 2022, at the Modern Art Museum of Fort Worth. During this unique five-day festival, the Miró Quartet will perform all 16 string quartets composed by the legendary Ludwig van Beethoven (1770 – 1827). It is rare to have the opportunity to hear all 16 string quartets in one place at one time, and the Beethoven Festival is expected to sell out quickly and attract music lovers from across the country. Tickets for the event will go on sale on June 1, 2022. More information on tickets, ticket sales, and festival-related events will be released on www.chambermusicfw.org and on CMSFW social media accounts (Facebook and Instagram).
