The CMF 2011 schedule includes daily evening concerts, a family program, panel discussion, late night events and impromptu daytime performances at various Chelsea landmarks such as the High Line and Hudson River Park.

This event features Composers-in-Residence Doug Balliett and Brad Balliett, Chelsea Music Festival musicians and Festival Visual Artist-in-Residence Carri Jobe.
