ABOUT WCM

Co-Artistic Directors: Andrew Waggoner (composer and violinist) and Caroline Stinson (cellist)

Artistic Directors’ Message

Weekend of Chamber Music’s 26th year!

Sommerwind… it’s both a seminal work by Anton Webern and (in English) an indispensable part of the Frank Sinatra canon. Either way it speaks to a breeze’s warm caress, to memory, nostalgia, and the bittersweet passing of time. For us it also conjures summer in the Catskills, the uncanny beauty of the light, the water, the green sloping of the mountains, the old friends we cherish and the new ones we make every summer. Singing of all that and more is music from the singularity between old and new, with works from Brahms, Debussy, Webern, and Alexander von Zemlinsky, one of the most brilliant and intoxicating voices from fin de siècle Vienna. Add to the mix the playful, crystalline music of composer in residence Harold Meltzer, the unbounded creativity of our chamber music immersion fellows, and music for the fiery Sunrise of filmmaker F.W. Murnau, and this summer positively shimmers.

Love,
Carrie & Andy

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.
