The La Jolla Music Society in California presents "SummerFest" every year, where a huge number of chamber groups gather to perform and give workshops.  Their Youtube channel has a wealth of videos documenting this festivel from the last 10 years.

Here's a full performance of Beethoven's String Quartet Opus 135 by the Tokyo String Quartet at the 2008 Summerfest:

I'll be featuring more highlights from the Summerfest collection in the future....

As a second feature for today here's a concert from Serreconcert 5 (Conservatory Concert 5) from the conservatory of the AKN-building in Hilversum, Netherlands.  The Rubens String Quartet performs Mozart's String Quartet KV 589, followed by Beethoven's "Harp" Quartet Opus 74.
