Our Classical Encounters continue to bring informal chamber music performances into untraditional venues around Burlington—click here for a listing of the remaining appearances as the festival nears its end. We would love for you to stop in and listen, and meet our musicians!
With only several days to go before this year's festival ends, many of our students will be performing the great chamber music works they have been preparing. In the UVM Recital Hall, Emerging Artists concerts will take place on Monday 7/20, Tuesday 7/21, and Thursday 7/23, each concert beginning at 7:30 pm. Extra afternoon concerts this coming week will feature students playing partial works: concertos and other solo pieces on Tuesday 7/21, and chamber works on Thursday 7/23. Feel free to stop in at the UVM Recital Hall anytime between 2 and 6 pm for these concerts.
During the final week of our 2014 session, Burlington's weekly paper Seven Days covered Classical Encounters with a fine article by arts writer Amy Lilly. Read it here:
Renowned cellist Matt Haimovitz will again be our guest in 2015 for a residency from July 14-17. The residency will include opportunities for cello students and chamber ensembles to receive coachings, a presentation on musical entrepreneurship for festival students, a chamber music master class open to the public, and Haimovitz's performances on our July 17 Artist Faculty Series concert.
