Basically Beethoven Festival 2023
Music with Friends
“It was such an amazing experience that we went again the next weekend with all of our children. I told so many people to go. It is a really special series. It is very rare to experience that caliber of musical talent, new and established, in a community-friendly atmosphere, that encourages children's attendance, and is free. Truly special!" - BBF23 patron
The Basically Beethoven Festival - basically, 40+ years of chamber music concerts - free for all
Basically, the best show in town ...
Free, family-friendly concerts on Sundays in July at 2:30 pm
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 and curated by BBF Artistic Director Alex McDonald.
Every program begins with a Rising Star Recital spotlighting local, gifted young musicians, many of whom are winners of area music contests 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.
Since the pandemic, we now offer recordings of these concerts on our YouTube channel HERE.
