Description

A Musical Feast

The fourth annual White Lake Chamber Music Festival will be held August 2-11, 2013. A mix of visiting professional groups and local talent will again offer a wide variety of performances throughout the White Lake Area. The week will be chock-full of events from concerts, master classes, an intimate concert, a college solo competition,
5pm Serendipity Recitals, afternoon tea recitals, children’s concerts, and more. Professional groups include the Thoreau Piano Trio, Robert Swan - retired violist of the Chicago Symphony, Chicago Symphony clarinetist John Bruce Yeh, and Italian pianist Aldo de Vero will return to play a piano 4-hand recital with Bryan Uecker.

Chamber groups formed by local and visiting musicians will be coached by professionals during morning master classes that will be open to the public where one can witness how ensemble music is shaped and crafted. The groups will perform their polished pieces at daily Serendipity recitals at 5 p.m. at The Book Nook & Java Shop.

An exciting event in this year's line-up is the solo competition for college music majors. Eleven outstanding finalists will be selected representing music schools across the state to perform their pieces live in front of the audience and judges. $1000 in award money will be given to the top three winners based on judges ruling. The audience will also be able to vote and an additional $125 will be given to the audience favorite.

Children's events include a concert and instrument petting zoo at the White Lake Library and a children's recital at the Book Nook.

Two new and exciting events have been added to our lineup this year. The White Lake Community Choral Day on August 3 will feature workshops with Dave Wikman and Joel Dulyea. An afternoon rehearsal is available to all area vocalists with an evening concert presented by the Muskegon Chamber Choir and community vocalists.

Our second added event will be a "Clarinet Day" with guest artist John Bruce Yeh from the Chicago Symphony. Workshops, recitals, masterclasses, and a clarinet choir are all part of a packed day on August 2.

One aspect that makes this festival unique is that we not only offer professional concerts at concert venues but we also bring the music to where people already are: afternoon tea recitals at local B&B's, 5pm recitals at the Book Nook & Java Shop, Saturday morning tea recital at Paisley Place, a garden recital in the beautiful back garden of Pekadill's, a classical guitar recital at the White River Gallery, and a concert at Pub 111.

A "Music with Friends" concert will be held at Alan & Anne Dake's home on beautiful White Lake on Friday, August 2nd. Wine, cheese and desserts will be served between musical sets. A limited number of tickets will be available at the Book Nook and the Arts Council of White Lake the beginning of June. Performing will be John Bruce Yeh.

Guest Artists:
The Thoreau Piano Trio
The members of the Thoreau Piano Trio, violinist Susan Jensen, cellist Darry Dolezal, and pianist Paul Jacobs, bring together a world of musical experiences, including performances in major American cities, in Europe, Asia and South America, in concert halls and recording studios, for live radio and television broadcasts and on major motion picture film scores.

The Thoreau Piano Trio was formed in 2011 at the Warebrook Contemporary Music Festival in Vermont, and is hailed for creating adventurous and innovative
programs, connecting diverse art forms and collaborating with living composers and visual artists. Their sense of adventure and love for all types of music is
the impetus for their exciting, compelling and transcendent performances in styles ranging from classical to avant-garde. In addition, the Thoreau Piano Trio is committed
to mentoring young musicians and composers in rigorous teaching appointments and summer music festivals.
