The event features a small group of musicians of international acclaim and includes a classical café’ concert, a festival concert, two relaxed and intimate salon concerts, and a free children’s concert.
The 2019 festival will again be under the artistic direction of renowned concert pianist, Max Levinson, and will include musicians Markus Placci, violin; Melissa Reardon, viola; and Raman Ramakrishnan, cello.
