Halcyon Music Festival Announces its Fifth Season
The Seacoast’s premier chamber music festival, led by Artistic Director Heng-Jin Park, opens its landmark fifth season this June. Over twenty international virtuosos will gather for two weeks to live, rehearse, and perform in a collaborative environment. The aim of the festival is to bring chamber music of the highest quality to Portsmouth and the surrounding communities. Our returning participants, including David Hardy (principal cello, National Symphony Orchestra) and Irina Muresanu (international violin soloist), will be joined by Carol Rodland (viola, the Juilliard School), Peter Stumpf (cello, Indiana University), and others.
“This year we are excited to continue our new partnership with the University of New Hampshire. In addition to living on campus, we will be rehearsing and performing two concerts in Bratton Recital Hall,” noted Park. Seven events with a rich variety of programming will be presented at St. John’s Episcopal Church (Portsmouth) and Bratton Recital Hall (UNH, Durham). Admission is based on suggested donation, and package deals are available.
The full festival schedule is below. All concerts start at 7:30 PM. For more information, please visit halcyonmusicfestival.org.
