Music in the Vineyards 2017: Friday, August 4th to Sunday, August 27th
We are eagerly making plans for the 2017 festival and it promises to be a very special one. We have engaged ensembles including the renowned Pacifica Quartet, the Chiara Quartet (who have earned recognition by performing their concerts from memory), and the very popular Escher Quartet in their fourth return engagement with us. There will also be some familiar faces returning: flutist Lorna McGhee, conductor/clarinetist Osmo Vanska, violinists Erin Keefe, Ara Gregorian, Hye-Jin Kim, and Violaine Melancon, violist David Harding, cellist Nicholas Canellakis, pianists Wei-Yi Yang and Michael Brown and, of course, violinist Axel Strauss.
The festival begins on Friday, August 4th and concerts will take place on Fridays, Saturdays, Sundays and Wednesdays through to August 27th. Saturday, August 12th will be a special gala evening celebrating La Belle Époque with gourmet French dining and a live auction.
Further details of the program and winery venues will be available soon – we look forward to seeing you in August.
