Meet the Directors

Utah's oldest classical music festival, the Beethoven Festival of Park City, was founded and is directed by Juilliard-trained violist Leslie Harlow and renowned solo and chamber clarinetist Russell Harlow. The Harlows gather excellent players together to perform chamber music in intimate venues, and have planned, programmed and performed as artists in residence for over 33 years in over 700 concerts featuring outstanding classical solo artists from around the world.
