Festival director Ian Scarfe will be joined by violinist Edwin Huizinga, violist Stephen Fine, and cellist Hannah Addario-Berry for a special preview of the Trinity Alps Chamber Music Festival’s 2014 Summer Programs.
Held in the scenic Trinity Alps Wilderness from June 15-30, this summer’s programming includes one weekend devoted to the chamber music of Brahms, and a second weekend featuring Aaron Copland’s Pulitzer Prize-winning Appalachian Spring, in its original version for chamber ensemble.
Though it began as a summer retreat for Bay Area classical musicians, this festival has quickly grown into one of the premier presenters of classical chamber music in Northern California. With an emphasis on youth outreach and school shows, the festival has performed for thousands of youth without access to live classical music, including a recent tour featuring a 11-musician chamber music arrangement of Prokofiev’s “Peter and the Wolf.”
