The Lake Champlain Chamber Music Festival has evolved and expanded its programming to include a 9-day summer festival (August 23-31, 2014), a winter encore concert, and a two-concert collaboration with the Flynn Center for the Performing Arts.
This collaboration for the 2013-14 season involves two concerts at the FlynnSpace featuring Soovin Kim's Johannes String Quartet and Performance Today's Fred Child. In "Mozart Magnified, Part 1," on Sunday, September 22, Fred explored with the Quartet two Mozart quartets and works by the miniaturist György Kurtag. At the second concert, the Quartet will play two more Mozart Quartets and works by Anton Weber, at the FlynnSpace, Thursday, February 27, 2014.
Soovin Kim, the Festival's Artistic Director had this to say after the first sell-out concert at the FlynnSpace on September 22:
"That evening embodied a major aspect of what I feel makes our festival special: divine music brought alive on an even deeper level than is apparent to everybody through an exploration of the language - a learning experience not only for the audience but for the performers as well including Fred Child. There was a tremendous feeling in the room of engagement, passion, inspiration, and community… The evening felt like yet another step in the growth of our festival."
