The White Lake Chamber Music Festival is Back!
The joy of live performances will finally return to the White Lake area. From August 3rd through 8th, the White Lake Chamber Music Festival will once again present exceptional performances! Excellent programming, world-class artists, and inspiring classical music performances will take place outdoors at the White Lake Golf Course pavilion (6355 Michillinda Rd., Whitehall).
The Chicago based, world-renowned Avalon String Quartet returns to the White Lake area as the Festival’s quartet-in-residence. This quartet, described as “…deeply musical and sheerly gorgeous”, is the cornerstone of the Festival, presenting three concerts on August 3rd, 5th, and 7th, that includes an all-Beethoven concert, a performance of the Schubert Cello Quintet with cellist Marina Hoover, and the Dvorak String Quartet Op. 51 in Eb Major “The Slavonic”.
Hear the Detroit Symphony Trio on August 4th, featuring flutist Jeff Zook, Sheryl Hwangbo, violin, and David Ledoux, cello, performing works by Haydn, Godard, Vivaldi, Faure, Girtain, and more.
Rounding out the shortened schedule will be a performance by the DePaul Trombone Quartet featuring internationally acclaimed soloist and Chicago Symphony Bass Trombonist Charlie Vernon on August 6th.
An Austrian themed Gala Dinner/cook out will complete the Festival on August 8th at the pavilion with artist Michael Schaeffer, accordion.
While this summer’s schedule is shortened from the typical 10-day festival, there will once again be the world’s greatest music wonderfully played, combined with the soft summer weather, beaches, and spectacular sunsets. All of this makes the White Lake Chamber Music Festival a vacation destination for an ever-growing audience from near and far.
A limited number of tickets will be available starting June 15 at the Book Nook & Java Shop (231-894-5333) and on-line at www,whitelakemusic.org.
