Party at the Dock Street

Overflowing with exuberant musicianship and joyful camaraderie, 11 stimulating and boisterous programs—each performed three times—feature bright contemporary compositions and canonic treasures. This season, hear Copland’s invigorating Appalachian Spring, Schubert’s beloved octet, and the world premiere of composer-in-residence Paul Wiancko’s oboe quintet for James Austin Smith and the St. Lawrence String Quartet. Returning Festival favorites include countertenor Anthony Roth Costanzo, flutist Tara Helen O’Connor, tenor Paul Groves, and a glorious trio of pianists—Inon Barnatan, Pedja Muzijevic, and Stephen Prutsman. These and others are joined by exciting newcomers: bassoonist Amy Harman brings her “supreme eloquence” (The Times); the multi-faceted Paul Holmes Morton performs on both his lute and theorbo; and David Byrd-Marrow offers his “stunning and assured” (The New York Times) tone on the French horn. Come celebrate Geoff Nuttall’s 10th season at the helm of this unmatched series in the intimate Dock Street Theatre.
