The Martha’s Vineyard Chamber Music Society is pleased to announce its 47th Season! Featuring world-class artists, new visitors, and returning favorites, this season promises to be, as always, delightful and rewarding!
Our 2017 season begins on May 28 with
THE MEMORIAL DAY CONCERT
May 28, 2017, 4 PM, at the Old Whaling Church, Edgartown.
Guest Artists Jonathan Davis, Oboe professor at UCLA, and Patricia Cloud, faculty flute professor of the University of California, Irvine, will join MVCMS Artistic Director Delores Stevens for a concert of Bach, Saint-Saens, Debussy, and others. This concert promises to be a treat for our returning chamber music listeners; additionally, we are extending a warm welcome to island students – in particular, our young island musicians. This is an opportunity to hear not only music from these fine performers, but also a commentary on the music and the instruments they play.
