Artistic Directors’ Message
The New FANTASTIC!

There’s much talk now of a “new normal”. We all know what that means as we complete our crash course on the Greek alphabet. Well “normal” doesn’t interest us; what we need right now is the New FANTASTIC. And so we’re bringing it to you. Gorgeous, seminal works from Bach, Brahms, Britten, Stravinsky and Sibelius (his super-charged yet little-heard Piano Quintet in g minor), composed when they were all new: young, brash, ready to take on the world, and totally fantastic. And of course there’s the new new, with Füsun Köksal’s radiant string quartet Of Light and Shadows (the runaway hit of our concert at the Cooperage last November); 20th-century Italian master Luciano Berio’s haunting and moving O King; and works by this year’s Composer in Residence, British sensation Hannah Kendall. Bringing all of this music to life will be old friends Nurit Pacht, Mari Sato, Kathryn Lockwood, and Canadian pianist Sarah Ho, along with first-time appearances by pianists Andrew Zhou and Orli Shaham, and the innovative, always unexpected TAK Ensemble.

In spite of everything we’ve endured, no matter the challenges ahead, life is truly fantastic. Please come celebrate it with us this summer!

Love,
Andy & Carrie

Our Mission

We engage the public of the Catskills and the Upper Delaware region directly by bringing transformative performances of, and discussion around, chamber music to a wide variety of venues across the region. With events each season in a converted barn (our main concert home); a distillery; a country inn; a farmer’s market; a church lawn; a repurposed school; and an old mill-turned-gallery, we bring our work straight to the people wherever they are.  Our commitment to what we see as an essential mix of standard repertoire, new music, encounters with living composers, and improvisation, ensures that our audiences come to see chamber music as a vital, contemporary, evolving art form, one that speaks directly to them, of their lives and their shared humanity.
