Classical 101.1 WRR Focus on the Arts: The Mimir Chamber Music Festival Celebrates 25 years as a summer highlight in DFW’s music scene

“One of the things we really pride ourselves on is programming,” says Mimir Chamber Music Festival founder and Executive Director Curt Thompson, who adds that this year’s festival includes some touching, retrospective performances: A tribute to the late Jose Feghali, a quartet by Jennifer Higdon, works by Florence Price, and more. The festival runs June 27th through July 8th with concerts at both TCU’s Pepsico Recital Hall and the Kimbell Art Museum.
