The Stein Chamber Music Festival is a wonderful musical celebration that gives area musicians an opportunity to perform chamber music. The Festival was created over 30 years ago to honor the memory and accomplishments of Joseph Stein, long-time Belmont resident and music supporter. The Festival now also honors his wife, Lise Stein, who passed away in 2007. The Steins' love of chamber music lives on in this spectacular evening, which celebrates the great literature written for small ensembles.
The Festival offers a double program featuring a potluck dinner intermission for festival participants. Two unique performances encompass a wide variety of musical genres, in various instrumental settings, by all ages and abilities. One can expect to hear amateurs and professionals together under one roof in a joyful atmosphere of learning, sharing and performance. Boundaries of chamber music are stretched by a selection of music ranging from works by Bach, Haydn and Vivaldi to jazz standards by Duke Ellington and Chick Corea.
Ensembles interested in playing at this year's Stein Chamber Music Festival should contact Sarah Freiberg, Ensemble Chair, at (617) 484-4696. Sign-up forms will be distributed in January.
