It's summertime in Ottawa and you know what that means? Summer music festivals, of course, and one of the big ones, Chamberfest, kicks off July 25 and runs though August 8.

Opening Night on CBC News Ottawa - Thursday, July 25, 2013
CBC Ottawa has a long history covering Chamberfest. A quick dive into our archives brought up all kinds of treasures.
For instance, we had the pleasure of speaking with Rob Kapilow, who will reprise his "What Makes It Great?" series at Chamberfest this year. Here, he gives a sneak peek at why we love Mozart's "A Little Night Music". Originally broadcast on Ottawa Morning, August 7, 2012.
Last year Chamberfest marked the rebirth of a 236-year old Fortepiano, refurbished thanks to the hard work of a Carleton University student. Host Alan Neal spoke with music professor James Wright about the project. Originally broadcast on All in a Day, July 22, 2012.
