If your Palm Beach County July has been a little less musical than normal, you’re not imagining things. 

The Palm Beach County Chamber Music Festival, which has presented concerts each summer since 1992, went on hiatus this year, primarily because of a lack of funds. But the organizers of the group say they want to be back in the summer of 2024, and are mounting a fundraising campaign to do so.  

Karen Fuller, a flutist and one of the three founders of the festival, said she and her colleagues had decided in April against presenting concerts this summer, and had planned to bring an end to the project. Until the COVID pandemic, the festival offered 12 concerts, three each on four weekends throughout July.
