As I write this at the end of May, I realize that for the last 7 years, this has been the time that I gear up to move to Avaloch and start the season. It is always such a joy to greet the staff, start tasting Chef Pete’s creations, and experience once again the extraordinary beauty, peace and space which Avaloch provides for all of us. It is hard to believe that it won’t be happening this year, but the response to our “Made at Avaloch” proposal has been so robust, so filled with the energy and creativity that Avaloch promotes, it feels like we can say with pride and confidence that Avaloch Farm Music Institute is alive and well!
We will be presenting 18 events, each on a Friday evening. The concerts will begin on July 3rd, and end on October 30th and will start at 8:00PM Eastern, (since we don’t have to wait for kitchen clean up!) Please see the concert schedule below. It was very difficult to choose from the 130 proposals, and we have done our best to chose a wide variety of ensemble types and collaborations. We hope these events will reflect the scope of the work done at Avaloch, and the importance we have always placed on the collegial sharing of the creative process. We will let everyone know how to access and be part of these sharing sessions.
We look forward to seeing and hearing many of you this summer. Stay well, stay connected with each other, and Avaloch, and keep the music flowing.
Deb Sherr, Artistic Director
