Festival Artist Director Linda Chesis will have musical conversations with some of New York's pre-eminent chamber musicians, including oboist extraordinaire James Austin Smith, Anna Elashvili, violin, Melissa Reardon, viola and Mihai Marica, cello in a program that includes works by Mozart, Sussmayr, Ginastera, Bliss and Schubert.
About the Festival: Founded in 1999, the Cooperstown Summer Music Festival has been bringing world-class chamber music performances to the Cooperstown area for 20 years. The festival has featured performances by the Tokyo String Quartet, the American String Quartet, the St. Lawrence String Quartet, Kurt Elling, Tim Fain, Bill Charlap, Hilary Kole, Simone Dinnerstein, Mark O'Connor, the Sonia Olla Flamenco Dance Company, and many more.
Celebrated graphic artist Milton Glaser (best known for the I Heart NY campaign) has created a series of 18 posters for the Festival featuring violins and cows, a nod to Cooperstown's rural character. Performance Today host Fred Child has said, "Not only do they do interesting concerts, they have great posters."
The Cooperstown Summer Music Festival is made possible by the New York State Council on the Arts with the support of Governor Andrew Cuomo and the New York State Legislature.
