2017 GUIDE TO FESTIVALS

Sarasota Music Festival
Sarasota Music Festival
WHAT DISTINGUISHES THIS FESTIVAL
The short duration of SMF creates an intensive environment and the faculty rotate each week. Participants direct their own chamber studies by choosing the repertoire and fellow players. Orchestra concerts feature our SMF alumni as soloists including Noah Bendix-Balgley, Jasmine Choi, Frank Huang, Elena Urioste.
FESTIVAL HIGHLIGHTS
Led by Music Director Jeffrey Kahane, the festival offers a magical combination of 40 acclaimed faculty artists performing intriguing repertoire with 60 students from around the country, ages 18-30. This year’s concerts include an evening of all six Bach Brandenburg Concertos, Gershwin’s Rhapsody in Blue led by Kahane from the piano, Paraphrase on a Theme of Brian Eno by Timos Andres, Mozart Symphony No. 40, and many other chamber and orchestra pieces. Featured this year will be the ensemble YMusic, a group that exemplifies the festival’s high performance level and mentoring. Master classes and rehearsals are all open to the public and the intimate environment of SMF infuses the faculty, students, and audience with inspiration, harmony, and great hope for the future of classical music.
