2020 Season – CANCELED

Drake University has cancelled the 2020 Zenith Chamber Music Festival due to the COVID-19 pandemic. The series was scheduled to take place June 2 through June 6 in various locations throughout the Des Moines Metro. Please save the dates for our 2021 Season: June 8-12, 2021.

The health, safety, and wellbeing of Drake’s Zenith Chamber Music Festival artists and attendees, along with guidance from local and national health officials, have been at the forefront of the decision-making process. Directives from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, Iowa Department of Public Health, Polk County Health Department, and City of Des Moines regarding large gatherings make it clear canceling the Zenith Chamber Music Festival is necessary. However, be sure to watch our Facebook page to learn about a future virtual concert.
