often hilarious ways. Knees are bruised. Hearts are broken. But the
bruises heal, and the hearts mend–almost — in this delightful
midwinter night’s dream”

The boys formed the Phil Cohran Youth Ensemble, and toured the United States performing the original written jazz compositions of Duke Ellington, Count Basie, and the music of classical greats Bach and Beethoven.

With eight albums under their belt, over three million records sold and countless nights on the road, Rusted Root transcends age, cultures and musical styles. Liz explains that the members of Rusted Root are drawn to and have explored virtually every form of music. “I am very inspired vocally by anything from Indian to African to Middle Eastern sounds and scales having grown up with a lot of Hebrew music” she says. Michael Glabicki cites the Bee Gees, Elvis Costello, Neil Young, Toni Childs, Black Keys, Black Sabbath and various Afro Pop music as among his influences. The powerhouse ensemble’s hypnotic live performances have allowed them to tour alongside Santana, Dave Matthews Band, The Allman Brothers Band, Plant & Page and many others. Now with the release of their newest album, The Movement, the journey continues.

Gt. Barrington, MA–Close Encounters With Music: Fanfare for the Uncommon Woman @ Mahaiwe Performing Arts Center
Jun 10 @ 6:00 pm

Anonymous may have been a woman composer. Clara Schumann, Fannie Mendelssohn, Germaine Tailleferre, Maria Theresia von Paradis, Ethel Smythe, Lili Boulanger, Amy Beach, Marianna Martinez, and Augusta Holmès (120-some songs!), move from footnotes to forces in the annals of classical music as women gain the vote and their artistic voices. Extraordinary works by these fearless female composers include songs and sonatas displaying the genius of Fannie, Clara, Amy and Augusta; Tailleferre’s richly romantic Piano Trio; von Paradis’ shimmering Sicilienne; Piano Sonata in G Major by Martinez, a study in beauty and classicism, plus the Mozart four-hand piano sonata she performed with Amadeus himself. Additionally, to kick off a multi-year celebration of women in music, CEWM has commissioned a “quilt” of miniatures by composers Thea Musgrave, Tamar Muskal, Joan Tower, and Judith Zaimont, musical portraits of suffragettes and other women of valor—Smythe, Emma Lazarus, Sojourner Truth, and Candace Wheeler—who advanced the causes of everyone with their steadfastness, ingenuity and idealism.

Lenox, MA–Four Voices: Joan Baez, Indigo Girls & Mary Chapin Carpenter @ Tanglewood
Jun 17 @ 7:00 pm

 

The “Four Voices” tour was born from a friendship between Joan Baez, Mary Chapin Carpenter, Amy Ray, and Emily Saliers. Over 25 years ago, Baez invited Ray and Saliers to perform at a 1991 benefit at the Berkeley Community Theater for her human rights organization, Humanitas. Upon accepting the invitation, Ray and Saliers suggested enlisting Carpenter as well. After a successful performance, the four of them reconnected a year later at an Earth Day Celebration in Boston and at the Newport Folk Festival. Most recently, while together at Baez’s 75th birthday concert at the Beacon Theatre, they discussed the possibility of going on tour together and-one year later-the Four Voices Tour was confirmed.

Norfolk, CT–Yale Choral Artists: Whitman, Melville and Dickinson – Passions of Bloom @ Ellen Battell Stoeckel Estate
Jun 21 @ 7:30 pm

Whitman, Melville and Dickinson — Passions of Bloom, commissioned this year from Martin Bresnick by the New Haven Festival of Arts and Ideas. Performed by a professional choir and ensemble directed by Yale Glee Club Director, Jeffrey Douma.
——-
Music in Norfolk has a long and vibrant history, dating back to the 1890s when Ellen Battell and her husband Carl Stoeckel, son of the Yale School of Music’s first professor, founded the Litchfield County Choral Union.  Upon her death in 1939, Ellen Battell Stoeckel left her estate in a private trust with instructions that the facilities be used for Yale University’s summer music school, ensuring an enduring artistic legacy. The Yale Summer School of Music – Norfolk Chamber Music Festival has a dual teaching/performance purpose. Audiences from around the country come to northwest Connecticut to hear world-class artists.

Over the years, while Norfolk has become a symbol of quality in chamber music performance and professional study, thousands have enjoyed the picturesque environment of the Ellen Battell Stoeckel Estate and the excellence of one of America’s most distinguished musical traditions.

Gt. Barrington, MA–Boston Early Music Festival presents Pergolesi’s La Serva Padrona & Livietta e Tracollo @ Mahaiwe Performing Arts Center
Jun 24 @ 8:00 pm

PRE-CONCERT TALK at 7 pm by members of the BEMF directorial team

IMPORTANT TICKET INFORMATION:
Not finding the seats you are looking for?   Tickets for this event are also available for purchase directly through Boston Early Music Festival.  Visit BEMF.org or call (617) 661-1812

Humor and love abound as the BEMF Chamber Opera Series presents a double bill of Neapolitan comic opera—Pergolesi`s La serva padrona and Livietta e Tracollo.

These delightfully witty masterpieces come to life in an intimate chamber production led by GRAMMY-winning Musical Directors Paul O’Dette and Stephen Stubbs and acclaimed Stage Director Gilbert Blin. Originally written as interludes during productions with a more sober tone, Pergolesi’s comedies enchanted audiences with their side-splitting humor and engaging romance. La serva padrona tells the tale of a cunning maid who conspires to win the heart of her testy employer, while in Livietta e Tracollo, a duplicitous con artist meets his match in a peasant woman plotting his comeuppance to avenge her brother.

This lively staging is an encore of BEMF’s 2014 production that The Boston Globe hailed for its “zest and earthy opulence.”
