Padanaram Chamber Music Festival - Winter Classics Concert


Padanaram Chamber Music Festival
Winter Classics Concert

Please join us on Saturday, January 19, 2019 at 6:30pm at St. Peter’s Episcopal Church, 351 Elm Street in Dartmouth (Padanaram Village) for a concert of Bach, Amy Beach, Brahms and more!

Admission is FREE!

We hope you’ll join us after the concert for some refreshments and a chance to speak with the artists about our plan to bring world class classical music to Padanaram and the greater Dartmouth Community!

Our visiting artists are linked through years of friendship and music making together and are excited to present a wonderful concert of great classics of the chamber music and solo repertoire.

This “Winter Classics” performance is an introduction to the Padanaram Chamber Music Festival, a two week long chamber music intensive in August 2019, supported by St. Peter’s Episcopal Church and the Dartmouth Cultural Center, Inc. The festival’s mission is two fold, to bring world class chamber music to the community and to help cultivate the next generation of truly great artists.

Our wonderful musicians are excited to perform for you and hope to speak with you after the concert. See you in January!
