The North Shore Chamber Music Festival returns this week, running from June 5 to June 8. Based in Northbrook, the festival was founded in 2010 by husband-wife creative collaborators Vadim Gluzman, violin, and Angela Yoffe, piano.

Across four programs, performers including violinist Paul Huang, pianist Alessio Bax, clarinetist Ilya Shterenberg, and the festival’s co-founders explore a range of chamber music repertoire. The 2024 Arkady Fomin Scholarship recipient Njioma Chinyere Grevious also features in the weekend.

The season features works by Pyotr Ilyich Tchaikovsky, Béla Bartók, George Gershwin, and more. Other highlight works include Beethoven’s Kreutzer Sonata and Dvořák’s American String Quartet.

Friday’s concert — a tribute to Benny Goodman — also features an opening showcase from emerging young musicians from the Betty Haag Academy of Music in Arlington Heights.

All performances take place at the Village Presbyterian Church in Northbrook.
