As Artistic Directors of the Cape Cod Chamber Music Festival we are thrilled to announce the upcoming concert season! Between July 30 and August 24, we will present thirteen concerts of amazing music in this 33rd Festival year. Thanks to your support the 2012 Festival will be a truly moving event.
Many of your favorite artists and ensembles will return including the Borromeo and Jupiter String Quartets, Clive Greensmith, Rebecca Young and Julian Schwarz. We eagerly anticipate the long-overdue return of former Artistic Director Brian Zeger as well as the first performances by stellar violinists Jennifer Frautschi and Frank Almond. Our opening concert celebrates the final Cape appearance of the Tokyo String Quartet in its current configuration, as Kazuhide Isomura and Kikuei Ikeda retire next season following their distinguished tenure with the ensemble.
As always a wide variety of repertoire bears treasures for all. Of special note is a rare and highly-anticipated evening with the phenomenal David Krakauer Klezmer Trio.
This season our familiar venues in Wellfleet, Chatham, Cotuit, Dennis and Provincetown host concerts with a new start-time—7:30 PM—in response to your welcome suggestions. You will also notice that we still have our one afternoon concert in Chatham and that the season now spans four weeks instead of three.
We extend to you our heartfelt thanks for your continued support of the Festival. We look forward to sharing these years with you. See you this summer~
