DIRECTED AND HOSTED BY GEOFF NUTTALL
Twice a day, every day
Let the party commence! Now in his ninth season as director and host, violinist Geoff Nuttall curates one of the most stimulating and boisterous chamber series in the country, at home in the intimate Dock Street Theatre. Eleven programs—each performed three times—enchant audiences by combining bright contemporary compositions, hidden old-world gems, and beloved treasures. A thrilling roster of musicians animate these midday delights, including countertenor Anthony Roth Costanzo, violinist Livia Sohn, pianist Inon Barnatan, violist Meena Bhasin, and cellist Joshua Roman. Joining these Festival favorites are newcomers Peter Moore, who serves as co-principal trombonist for the London Symphony Orchestra; tenor Paul Groves, whose 2018 schedule marks his 25th season performing with the Metropolitan Opera; and the Brooklyn-based JACK Quartet, which joins forces with St. Lawrence String Quartet to premiere an octet by composer-in-residence Doug Balliett. Exuberant musicianship paired with the antics and joy of friends reuniting creates an experience that is simply not to be missed.
