Minuetto Music Festival
The many missions of the Minuetto Music Festival can be united in one beautifully simple statement: cultivating an appreciation for classical music and opera. The three-day celebration brings together the talents of both established and emerging musicians, immersing listeners in sweeping sounds while nurturing a sense of community amongst artists and concertgoers.
Tuesday, June 25 – The Milton Cross Young Artist Showcase: this concert shines the spotlight on up-and-coming musicians, such as the winners of the Milton Cross Young Artist Competition and the Rising Star recipients chosen from competitors across the country.
Thursday, June 27 – Destino: three tenors and a violinist showcase talents honed at Carnegie Hall and the 2008 Beijing Summer Olympics, blending their rich voices on classic and contemporary songs ranging from “Ave Maria” to “Don’t Wanna Miss a Thing.”
Saturday, June 29 – Minuetto Music Festival Finale Concert: in a rousing conclusion, the symphonic chorus, orchestra, and soloists pay homage to two classic pieces under the direction of conductors Candace Wicke and Beverly Coulter. Rossini’s Il Barbiere di Siviglia dips and swells with dramatic arias about the importance of regular sideburn trims. The evening draws to a close with Vaughan Williams’s cantata, Dona Nobis Pacem, a lushly harmonic call for peace.
