Pianist Harumi Makiyama returns to Cascadia, she earned her Master of Music at the New England Conservatory of Music, and a Doctor of Musical Art from UW, Harumi performs frequently in the Northwest.

Come enjoy these monthly concerts in our intimate gallery setting surrounded by beautiful art from the Northwest — close-up and personal, as chamber music was originally meant to be experienced.  

The concerts are about one-hour in length at 6 PM, leaving you time to dine out after.  Your concert ticket includes admission to all the museum galleries, so make sure you come early to see our current exhibits!

Seating is limited and these concerts often sell-out, so please we suggest reserving your seats well in advance.
