We are proud to announce our redesigned 2020 Festival Season. The music selected for our new series fits within a theme of Contrasts: honoring the paradox between the isolation and despair of present times with the connectedness and joy that music can bring. Over the coming weeks we will welcome a small group of principal artists to collaborate at Tornstrom Auditorium in streaming concerts which you can enjoy from the comfort of your own home. Each concert will be accessible via Facebook Live, and we look forward to broadening our audience this summer during a time when music and art are needed more than ever.

We look forward to having you and your friends join us often throughout the season and we invite you to click below and learn more about each concert.

Dmitri Shostakovich and George Enescu each made their mark as young people by writing a string octet at the age of 18. The complex texture of a double string quartet gives life to the youthful energy evident in both of these early masterpieces. Each of these works points to its composers’ future endeavors: Shostakovich with angst and fearless intensity and Enescu with eclectic joy. The sensual Légende, by Enescu and played by Tchaikovsky competition prizewinning trumpeter, Ansel Norris, serves as a palate cleanser alongside these wild acts of youthful exuberance.
