CMNW’s flagship Summer Festival presents programs of top international caliber in Portland’s premier performance venues for five weeks of activities that include both main-stage performances and casual “club” concerts, plus free outreach and educational events. The artists invited to perform range from rising stars to veterans, and are among the most sought-after soloists, chamber musicians and recording artists in the world. With a year-round staff of six, CMNW’s annual budget is $1.2 million; the organization has operated with a balanced budget since 1980.
