On Wednesday, July 5, at 7:30 PM, GMCMF guest violinist Paul Huang played the Franck Sonata with festival pianist Dmitri Shteinberg at the UVM Recital Hall on the third concert of our 2017 series. The Franck performance was praised by Jim Lowe of The Times Argus as "a powerful and beautiful musical journey." This concert was preceded by an discussion in the recital hall by Mr. Huang at 6:15, entitled “Shaping a Career,” the first of the festival’s Perspectives and Contexts pre-concert presentations. 

In 2017 renowned cellist Matt Haimovitz returned to GMCMF for his fourth annual residency at the festival. His time at Green Mountain from July 4th to 7th included opportunities for cello students and chamber ensembles to receive coachings along with a chamber music master class open to the public, and culminated in a concert on the July 7th Artist Faculty Series concert.

In 2017 our Classical Encounters series once again brought delightfully informal chamber music performances to non-traditional venues around Burlington. A complete list of 2017 performances is given below; in early June of 2018, the concerts fpr this series will be listed at the link Classical Encounters. Each season, our Emerging Artists look forward to meeting you at these events!
