The Long Island Chamber Music Festival (LICMF) and the Suffolk County Vanderbilt Museum have planned an afternoon of chamber music outdoors in the Vanderbilt Mansion’s beautiful courtyard, on Sunday, June 23, from 2:00 to 3:00 pm. The event is included with the normal price of general admission.
Come hear five of New York’s finest young musicians perform music inspired by dance. The program’s party atmosphere pairs Mozart’s charming Divertimento in D Major with a collection of dances arranged by the Danish String Quartet.
Composer Nick DiBerardino’s Between the Reels, inspired by reel tunes from Dublin’s many pubs, brings a raucous energy that is rounded out by the final piece of the concert – a tango and dance suite for French horn and string quartet by Corrado Maria Saglietti.
The Long Island Chamber Music Festival is comprised of young musicians of the highest caliber. Drawn from Carnegie Hall, the New York Philharmonic, Boston Symphony Orchestra, Astral Artists, and several other of the country’s most prestigious musical institutions.
Eric Huckins, the co-founder of LICMF said the festival musicians share a common mission, they work to present interactive performances of the highest quality, bringing engaging new music and approachable, informative programming to diverse audiences on Long Island.
The concert is included with the purchase of general admission. General admission is $8 for adults, $7 for students and seniors, $5 for children 12 & under and free for children 2 & under.
