South Worthington, Sevenars Music Festival

August 1, 2021 @ 4:00 pm - 7:00 pm EDT

Six concerts at the Academy – Sundays, July 11th – August 15th at 4PM! World Renowned Artists — Prizewinning Newcomers.

AUGUST 1st at 4PM: Taconic Chamber Players

Music of Beethoven, Rachmaninoff, Jessie Montgomery, and Stephen Dankner

This powerhouse ensemble led by violist Ariel Rudiakov and violinist Joana Genova will bring to Sevenars a magnificent program of string quartets, including Beethoven’s riveting Op.18, No. 1, Rachmaninoff’s stunning String Quartet No. 1, Jessie Montgomery’s energizing “Strum,” and a quartet by Berkshire treasure, Stephen Dankner! Favorites at Sevenars from the days when they rocketed the Manchester Music Festival to prominence, the stellar Genova-Rudiakov team has now directed their musical and communicative gifts (and decades of international touring and recording experience) to building the rapidly growing Taconic Music Festival, and Sevenars is ecstatic to host them again in the acoustic gem that embraces their sound so beautifully! Joining them will be prize-winning chamber musician and Boston University faculty member Heather Braun and superb cellist Thomas Landschoot, who enjoys an international career as performer, recording artist, and pedagogue.  Don’t miss this! Some program and personnel are subject to change – please check for updates!

Admission is by suggested donation (suggested $20 per person), by cash or check at the door. No tickets or reservations are required or accepted. Complimentary refreshments are offered at intermission. All music lovers welcome, though we ask that children (and adults) be able to sit quietly so as not to disturb others.  Note: No cellphones or recording devices are to be turned on at concerts, out of respect to performers’ rights and in the spirit of live music.  We look forward to seeing you!

Concerts are held at the Academy, South Ireland Street and Rte. 112, South Worthington, MA 01098
