Test Drive FAQ


For over 100 years, the Norfolk Festival has been presenting world-class concerts of music among friends. We believe that there is nothing like the experience of a live chamber music concert in our beautiful Music Shed. We feature the highest quality performances with artists from around the world including the Tokyo String Quartet, Richard Stoltzman and David Shifrin.

We want to share this experience with you, completely free of charge for your first visit with us.

If you’ve never been to the Norfolk Chamber Music Festival, or if you’ve been away for three years or more, we will give you two free tickets to any of our regular season concerts on us. All you have to do is complete a short survey or blog of what you thought about the program.

We hope that this first free experience will convince you to come back and listen to more of our other concerts.
