Sadly, we cannot proceed with the 2020 summer season we had planned. The pandemic has changed all of our lives in immeasurable ways, and we will miss seeing your faces this summer.
At the same time, humanity needs the arts more than ever during this time of isolation and uncertainty. We pledge to share music with you any way we can. In the coming weeks and months, we'll post new recordings and collaborations regularly on our Facebook and Instagram pages by way of videos, photos, and interviews; please stay tuned for regular updates as well as live and recorded performances from our festival musicians. Below, please enjoy an excerpt of a recent rehearsal and conversation with pianist Orion Weiss, one of our favorite musicians!
We are excited to plan for live performances and look forward to a two-week festival in summer 2021. Although we cannot meet in person this summer, we hope you'll stay in touch! Please do whatever you can to sustain your local arts organizations during this difficult time.
