High Peaks Music Fest at Carey Institute
The Carey Institute for Global Good, 100 Pond Hill Road, Rensselaerville, is offering the eighth annual edition of the Catskills High Peaks Music Festival, “Fanfare for the Uncommon Woman,” taking place through Aug. 17.
A joint presentation of the Carey Institute and the Berkshire-based chamber music organization Close Encounters With Music, this year’s festival features composers who revolutionized the place of women in the arts as it celebrates the 100th anniversary of women’s suffrage in New York state.
The 10-day chamber music festival and residency, directed by internationally acclaimed cellist Yehuda Hanani, offers a combination of concerts, lectures, films and master classes featuring veteran musicians sharing the stage with 50 outstanding young performers from around the world. Classical music masters will include violinists Peter Zazofsky and Irinia Miresanu, violist Michael Strauss and pianist Michael Chertock. Throughout the festival and residency, historic, forgotten and new works by women composers will be presented alongside major works by Bach, Schumann and Brahms.
This year’s festival will also include a “Buddy Day” concert in which approximately 25 students from Albany’s Empire State Youth Orchestra, Kids4Harmony in Pittsfield, Mass., and CHIMES of Albany will participate in a day of one-on-one mentoring and performance with the residents and masters.
