Here’s a sneak peek at some of the exciting programs and concerts to look forward to during the Highlands-Cashiers Chamber Music Festival this summer.
Artistic Director William Ransom tells us that plans are well under way for an exceptional season, starting with a special performance of Enoch Arden at Western Carolina University with George Brown and himself on June 25.
The regular concert series starts June 30 with Festival favorites the Eroica Trio, followed by the Gary Motley Trio with jazz saxophonist Will Scruggs. Some of the Festival’s most beloved artists will highlight the season − William and Alexandra Preucil, David and Julie Coucheron, Roman Kim, Philippe Quint, Fei-Fei Dong and the Vega Quartet.
Making their Festival debuts this season will be cellist Ani Aznavoorian; violist Aloysia Friedmann; and Julio Elizalde on piano. Cellist Zuill Bailey, considered the hottest thing going in Chamber Music, will make his debut for the Finale Gala on August 6.
