Saturday, August 20 – Sunday, August 28, 2022

Gloria Chien and Soovin Kim, Artistic Directors
David Serkin Ludwig, Resident Composer

The events of the last two years have given us much to reflect on. Our society has expressed a renewed desire to celebrate people of all cultures, races, and genders. Our 2022 LCCMF, Illumination, places a spotlight on composers and ensembles that will continue to open doors for future generations of creativity.

The Kalichstein-Laredo-Robinson Trio, the Catalyst Quartet, composer- flutist Valerie Coleman, composer-violist Nokuthula Ngwenyama, percussionist Ayano Kataoka, and clarinetist David Shifrin are just some of the performing artists who will be featured. It is truly worth celebrating the music-making that sits at the intersection of their diverse backgrounds.

While we managed to have a magical festival last August, we still had to leave out some of the elements that create the special LCCMF spirit. This summer, the Young Composers Seminar, Vermont artists gallery, pre-concert conversations, and the treasured personal interactions with musicians will all be back! Come join us in this celebratory return to the festival we all love!
