The 2018 Chesapeake Chamber Music Festival held on Maryland’s Eastern Shore from June 5 through June 17 will dissect the Magic of Chamber Music: The Composers, The Artists, Their Instruments, and Why We Listen.
Musicians from the world’s stages will perform the works of both familiar and lesser known composers from the past and present. During two music-filled weeks, artists and musical ensembles will perform 9 concerts featuring a wide range of works by Beethoven, Brahms, Mozart, Mahler, Norman, Prokofiev and more. Among the 15 musicians participating in the Festival are celebrated flutist Tara Helen O’Connor and her friends who will bring the flute, violin, viola and cello together in a new exciting way.
The opening concert at Christ Church in Easton will feature the works of Beethoven and Brahms, with a pre-concert commentary by Jonathan Palevsky of WBJC, and will conclude with a festive reception at Mason’s Redux 2017. The closing concert, “Stradgrass”, will highlight a new musical artform, classical music with a bluegrass twist and an array of instruments, including winds, strings, and piano. This year, a vocalist will electrify several concerts. Each concert tells a story through carefully matching artist and instrument, creating something unique and memorable with each performance.
Festivalgoers will enjoy returning to the smaller and more intimate venues of the Tred Avon Yacht Club, Oxford Community Center, and Academy Art Museum, as well as Easton’s Christ Church and Trinity Cathedral. The spacious Avalon Theatre will feature the 2018 Chamber Music Competition Winner as part of its special concert offering during Week Two.
