Classical music in the heart of New Hampshire

New Hampshire Music Festival announces 2016 summer season

2016 Season: July 5-August 4

With a theme of “Wanderlust,” our 64th season highlights cultural richness and diversity. We're thrilled to welcome back Conductor Laureate Paul Polivnick to the podium, and we also welcome violinist Yulia Milshtein as our new concertmaster. In addition to our Tuesday Chamber and Thursday Orchestra Classics concerts at the Silver Center in Plymouth, we will present a new three-concert chamber music series in Wolfeboro, a family concert with composer and multi-instrumentalist David Amram, Make Music Plymouth on July 23, and unique Music in the Mountains events.

"Art brings us together as a family because it is an individual expression of universal human experience. It comes from that part of us that is without fear, prejudice, malice, or any of the other things that we create in order to separate ourselves one from the other. Art makes each of us whole by insisting the we use all of our senses, our heads and our hearts, that we express with our bodies, our voices, our hands, as well as with our minds."
~Jessye Norman: Strive to Live Artfully, commencement speech at Oberlin College & Conservatory, May 2016
