When we created our Festival four years ago, little did we imagine how quickly our audiences would embrace the Festival. Your attendance at concerts and events, your donations, and your goodwill have made it clear that the Festival has great meaning for you. You encourage us to continue to bring the most thoughtful programming and highest quality of music-making to our audiences.
Your financial support has allowed us to present legendary personalities such as violinist Arnold Steinhardt of the Guarneri String Quartet, established young leaders of the music world such as pianists Ignat Solzhenitsyn and Jonathan Biss, and rising talents such as clarinetist Romie de Guise-Langlois. You have facilitated new commissions and made it possible to invite distinguished visiting composers such as Joan Tower and Marc Neikrug. Your further support will help us expand our outreach activities during the school year to reach more students and aspiring young musicians in a lasting way.
We hope you will consider supporting the Festival financially, as well as participating by attending concerts, masterclasses, and more. Please invite your friends to do the same. Together, we can ensure that what began as a dream of Soovin and a few friends is a lasting and wonderful part of our cultural landscape. The Festival is a 501(c)3 organization, and gifts are tax deductible to the fullest extent allowed by law.
Your gift allows us to:
- Keep ticket prices affordable.
- Continue to bring artists of the highest caliber to participate in the Festival.
- Support the Young Composers Seminar. This tuition-free festival within a festival has already enabled us to bring eight of the country’s most outstanding young composers to work and learn together. Vermonter Tim Woos (2009 Young Composers Seminar), is now studying composition at the Curtis Institute, and is one of several LCCMF Young Composers to be honored by the Morton Gould Young Composer Awards. By supporting young composers like Tim, you are helping to ensure that chamber music composition remains a vibrant, living art-form.
- Include free Bach on Church and other outreach events as part of the Festival. These shorter concerts in more intimate settings have proved to be a hit with Festival goers.
