The Central Vermont Chamber Music Festival will be celebrating its 21st year of bringing World-class Music to the Heart of Vermont with concerts in Randolph, Montpelier and Woodstock from August 15-25, 2013. This festival, under the direction of Artistic Director Peter Sanders, has earned its reputation over the years as a major contributor to the summer music scene in Vermont and the Northeast.
This year’s festival will feature the music of Beethoven, Shostakovich, Sarasate, and Brahms at Chandler Hall in Randolph and at the Pentangle Council on the Arts in Woodstock. In addition, the music of Bartok, Berio, Piston, and Bruch will be featured at Chandler and the Unitarian Universalist Church in Montpelier. A special concert for kids, “Off to the Islands,” will presented at Chandler by the Island Time Steel Band.
World-renowned performers will include: Cyrus Beroukhim (violin); Basia Danilow (violin); Arturo Delmoni (violin and viola); Adela Peña (violin); David Cerutti (viola); Peter Sanders (cello); Jung Lin (piano); Ellen Dinwiddie Smith (horn) and the Island Time Steel Band.
Jeffrey Domoto, Music Director & Conductor of the Vermont Youth Orchestra Association (VYAO) and previously a member of the conducting staffs of the New York City Opera and Minnesota Opera will conduct the Bach Double Violin Concerto on August 18, 2013 for the Breakfast with Bach. This concert continues the collaboration between the VYOA and the CVCMF bringing Festival Artists and Young Artists together for a memorable event for musicians and audience alike.
August 1993 was a highly successful and critically acclaimed first season for the Central Vermont Chamber Music Festival, which was founded by Artistic Director, Peter Sanders. Originally very much a family run festival, the CVCMF has grown over the years with the support of the Randolph area community. Chandler offers the festival an acoustically superior home base and allows the CVCMF to produce an interesting variety of concerts including world-class chamber music performances, an annual children’s concert, an open rehearsal and new this season a French Horn Master Class. The festival can also be heard on a variety of Radio broadcasts, on Youtube and can be found on Facebook.
