Copland's "Appalachian Spring"
This concert is in a private home and the opportunity to sit so close to the performer is a unique experience; tickets sell out quickly (on sale in February). The performance will also feature a pre-concert interview with the artist.
Here is a profile of Michael from the Chamber Music Society of Lincoln Center:
After the spring recital, summer is not far behind. As usual, the music will be a balance of the beautiful (Bach, Mozart), familiar (Ravel, Shostakovich), edgy (Bartok), and other-worldy (Dutilleux). We also have an exciting commission by Robert Bradshaw titled “A Day in the Life of Newburyport” (more on that in a later post). Following the cue of the world premiere, we’ll be playing in more locations around town than ever before. Indeed, during a week and a half in mid-August we’ll be ubiquitous and you’ll have to go out of your way to avoid running into the visiting artists around town in unexpected places.
David Yang, Artistic Director
We couldn’t bring the beauty of chamber music to our community without the support of area businesses, cultural commissions, foundations and, especially you. Please consider Newburyport Chamber Music Festival in your charitable giving. Your support makes it all possible.Thank you!
Some of you have been wondering what we are going to do this summer with COVID-19 followed by the foundation-rocking and (hopefully) transformative events of the last few weeks. We stand in solidarity with those raising their voices in the fight against racism and in support of justice and equality. We aren’t cancelling NCMF summer 2020 but instead of our usual events we’ll have a kind of summer version of Christmas caroling.
