PLYMOUTH, NH, MAY 5, 2014 – Single tickets for the 2014 New Hampshire Music Festival (NHMF) go on sale on Monday, May 12. The six-week season, July 8-August 14, will explore and celebrate the many facets of Romanticism, from the 18th century to the modern day.

 

The 62nd festival will take place in multiple venues throughout central New Hampshire. The Silver Center at Plymouth State University is the festival’s primary venue, where it will offer full orchestra performances on Thursdays and Saturdays, and Tuesday night chamber performances.

 

“We are offering six weeks of orchestral masterpieces that not only celebrate The Romantic Spirit, but showcase the full range of sounds that only a live symphony orchestra can create. Our chamber music concerts, curated by our musicians, will be full of musical gems not to be missed. We’ll perform beloved works of BeethovenMendelssohn,Vivaldi, and others, but we will also discover exciting musical treasures, heard at the NHMF for the very first time,” said music director Donato Cabrera. “We also welcome Dan Perkins, our new choral director and principal guest conductor, to the NHMF family. Maestro Perkins will begin his tenure by preparing the chorus for Verdi’s Requiem, but expect to see him on the podium in the summers to come!”

 

The festival’s educational outreach program, in partnership with the Arts Alliance of Northern New Hampshire, will culminate this summer with a July 26 Family Concert, designed to entertain, engage and educate people of all ages.The NHMF also continues its 603 Series, reaching new audiences with chamber performances throughout New Hampshire.   

 

Highlights of the season include concertos by Vivaldi, Mozart, Piazzolla, Milhaud, Conus, and Copland, and the festival will welcome four internationally renowned soloists to sing Verdi’s Requiem. In partnership with The Walden School, a summer music camp in Dublin, NH, Nathaniel Stookey will be the first composer-in-residence in a new concert series called Composer Portraits. Stookey’s The Composer is Dead, one of the most widely performed pieces of classical music composed in the last 10 years, will be performed alongside music by composers who Stookey admires.

Bank of New Hampshire is the festival’s first lead corporate partner, providing sponsorship for this season. Support is also provided by the Lincoln Financial Foundation.
