The Trinity Alps Chamber Music Festival, founded in 2011, is celebrating its tenth birthday this year with a series of summer concerts across California, and residencies bringing world-class musicians from around the world to beautiful rural Northern California. This coming week, the festival will continue its summer concert series with a concert in Eureka on Sunday, August 1st. As with all of the Festival's programs, this concert is open to the public, with admission on a sliding scale “suggested donation” basis.
The second concert will be at 2:00pm on Sunday, August 1, at the Morris Graves Museum of Art in Eureka. Trinity Alps festival musicians have always enjoyed performing at this museum, one of the original Carnegie Libraries of the early 20th Century. “The music room has such incredible acoustics,” says Scarfe, “and the atmosphere of being in a museum can't be beat. Audience members can arrive early to enjoy the galleries, and seating can be adapted so that audiences can enjoy the music throughout the museum.”
Musical selections will include a wide range of classical piano repertoire, ranging from the elegance of 18th Century masters such as Haydn and Beethoven, to passionate romantic works by Chopin and Liszt, to 20th Century American composers such as George Gershwin and Samuel Barber.
