Summer is A-Cumin’ in with Festivals Throughout NE

by

With the article below on the forthcoming concerts at the Frederick Collection, The Boston Musical Intelligencer inaugurates its summer festival coverage. During the months of May through August we will be listing events well outside of the greater Boston area. We also hope to post reviews from correspondents at the various festivals. Click BMInt’s “Upcoming Events” button and scroll through listings of Aston Magna, Rockport Chamber Music Festival,Tanglewood, Tannery Pond Concerts, Cape and Islands Festival, Monadnock Music Festival, Bay Chamber Concerts, Fredericks Collection, Kneisel Hall Festival, Heifetz International Festival, Portland Chamber Music Festival, and Bowdoin Festival. Starting in September we will again restrict our listings and reviews to venues within Route 128.

It has been a great pleasure for me to publish this e-journal and in the process learn more about Greater Boston’s musical riches. In the past year BMInt has listed over 1,800 concerts by over 325 presenters, and we have posted 479 reviews and articles. The public has found BMInt useful enough to be averaging more than 10,000 hits per day. Many thanks to presenters and readers — and “
…if you hear something, write something.”

  1. A great Summer musical experience is the The Heifetz International Music Institute which offers 2 or 3 concerts per week from early July to early August. The locale is Brewster Academy in beautiful Wolfeboro, NH. The Institute is a Summer camp for talented teenage string players who are taught by well known faculty members.

    The performers at the concerts consist of students and faculy on some evenings and just students on other nights. The small hall venue of about 400 seats has excellent acoustics.

    Having attended several concerts during the last two Summers, I was impressed by the technical expertise of the musicians and even more so by their passionate interpretation of both familiar and unfamilar chamber music.

    Check out The Heifetz International Music Institute online.
