THIS OUTDOOR EVENT IS PRESENTED FREE FOR THE COMMUNITY Expo begins at 12pm / Performance begins at 2pm
The Charles Ives Music Festival (CIMF) is a summer chamber music festival offering aspiring youth musicians the opportunity to perform side-by-side with world-class professional artists in chamber music groups. This event is free for the community and includes music that honors the legacy of Charles Ives through performances of his works, music of other American composers and musicians, and music that transcends the traditional boundaries of classical music. Music includes pieces by Chris Cerrone, CIMF Composer-in-Residence Hannah Lash, CIMF Artistic Director Paul Frucht, award-winning composer John Williams, Pulitzer-prize winning composer John Corigliano, and more! CIMF artists hold positions in major American orchestras such as the Metropolitan Opera Orchestra and the Dallas Symphony, lead acclaimed chamber ensembles, and perform on Broadway. CIMF student musicians perform at an advanced level and play alongside the professional artists. Prior to the performance, which will take place under the Playhouse tent, join us outside for some amazing artisans and other local vendors from 12-2.
Before the performance, visit our FREE expo. The expo will feature local businesses sharing product information, samples and demonstrations. There will be food samples, food for purchase and much more!
