NORTHBROOK – The North Shore Chamber Music Festival will be held on June 8, 10 and 11. It is an “inspired summer event not to be missed,” according to Chicago Classical Review, for Chicagoans and travelers alike. The Chicago Tribune calls NSCMF a “Chicago classical operation that thinks big. Very big. Internationally big.”
The 6th annual festival – on June 8, 10, and 11, 2016 – spans a magnificent musical mile as it traverses from sublime masterpieces of Bach and Schubert to great blockbusters of Tchaikovsky and Dvorak, from the evocative drama of Lera Auerbach’s music to the heartfelt romance of Max Bruch. It will explore the great Virtuoso-Composers of the past, the theatricality of Schnittke and Shostakovich, and brilliantly cunning musical comedy of Alexei Igudesman and “Professor Teddy Bor”.
Festival artists include the American pianist William Wolfram, cellists Wendy Warner and Mark Kosower, celebrated Israeli violist and composer Atar Arad, the renowned Ariel String Quartet, and the return of sensational violinist Danbi Um. The festival warmly welcomes young cellist Daniel Kaler, from Wilmette, who is this year’s Galvin/Haag Young Artist, and also the recipient of its 2016 Arkady Fomin Scholarship.
98.7 WFMT, Chicago’s premiere classical radio station, will record all three concerts for delayed broadcast.
All events of this year’s festival will be presented at the Village Presbyterian Church in Northbrook, just 2 minutes walk from the Northbrook Metra station.
Single tickets range from $25 to $45 with $15 tickets for students. Seniors receive a 20% discount. Schedule and ticketing details may be found on the festival’s new website at www.nscmf.org, or by calling (847) 370-3984.
