Bay Chamber Concerts 60th Summer Concert Season
On Tuesday, May 11, tickets for the 60th season of the Bay Chamber Concerts summer concerts will go on sale online at baychamber.org.
The season includes two opening weeks of virtual programming featuring acclaimed St. Lawrence String Quartet and regular Bay Chamber violinist Geoff Nuttall. Nuttall will be joined on Wednesday August 4 by faculty members from the Bay Chamber Music School for a concert broadcast live on their YouTube channel.
On Thursday August 12, Nuttall will be joined by a quartet of guest string musicians, for two concerts: A Little Light Music, a hybrid offering that combines a small live audience with live streaming on YouTube.
The following night, August 13, Bay Chamber brings back one of its most popular offerings, Candlelit Baroque, presented at First Congregational Church in Camden.
Several free concerts for the community will be offered throughout August and highlights include Jazz on the Water on Sunday August 15: two free concerts on Camden Village Green and a children’s concert with Palaver Strings.
From August 18 until August 22, Bay Chamber begins its 5 day Screen Door Festival – themed on a Tale of Tenderness, a dynamic series of 20 concerts designed to challenge, intrigue, inspire and excite. Presented in partnership with the Camden Public Library, the festival will take place in a tent at the historic amphitheater. Inspired by a year of reflection and resilience, the selection of performances pays homage to tradition while embracing innovation, celebrating the joy of musical creation with over 40 artists, including the Rolston String Quartet, Andrew Wolf Award Winner, Orion Weiss, The Westerlies and many more.
“This season is shaping up to be one of the most sensational to date!” Bay Chambers said in a press release. Visit www.baychamber.org for more information on their summer plans, including COVID-19 safety regulations, and stay tuned for the full announcement on Tuesday, May 11.
