The Festival Orchestra, under the direction of Music Director Jeffrey Kahane, takes the stage in a program spotlighting current and former Festival Fellows in a configuration of four, a scintillating duo, and a poignant solo. The depth of talent cultivated at the Festival will be on full display as four 2019 Violin Fellows join forces for Vivaldi's Concerto Grosso from L'estro Armonico. 2018 Festival alumni Katherine Arndt (violin) and Cassia Drake (viola) will share the stage for Mozart's beloved Sinfonia Concertante. Finally, pianist Jon Kimura Parker, world-renowned for his energy and onstage charisma, will bring his spirited personality to Beethoven's iconic Piano Concerto No. 4.
