As ever, the 2012 Festival will present a wide range of music, from the familiar to the very new. The same could be said about our musicians. In addition to the two Festival founders, cellist Raphael Bell and violinist Timothy Summers, returning are several Festival favorites of our audiences: violinist Jennifer Frautschi, clarinetist Matthew Hunt, flutist Demarre McGill and pianists Alasdair Beatson and Mimi Solomon, among others.
We are especially excited for the visit of several performers new to us: pianists John Blacklow and Ieva Jokubaviciute, plus a concert with the acclaimed string quartet Brooklyn Rider, which already includes several Festival veterans. In addition to this we’ll also be visited by violists Jennifer Stumm and Rebecca Albers, clarinetist Ixi Chen, and bassist Joseph Conyers.
