A continuation of this year’s theme, “Voices Intimate, Voices Powerful” will provide a wonderful sample of beautiful and powerful chamber music works. Held at Camp Hill Methodist Church in Harpers Ferry, this program promises a vibrant selection of chamber music featuring the virtuosity of our ACMF artists.

The concert opens with a powerful vocal work. Samuel Barber's "Dover Beach" sets the scene with its dramatic exploration of faith and doubt, featuring the voice of Thomas Coltman accompanied by string quartet.

Prepare to be swept away by the monumental beauty of Max Bruch's Octet. This virtuosic masterpiece showcases the talents of eight exceptional musicians. This performance also features the second performance of Rufus Reid’s commissioned work celebrating the Niagara movement, a pivotal group in the fight for African American civil rights which held its meetings in Harpers Ferry.

Highlighting the ensemble's versatility and expressivity, we’ll hear Astor Piazzolla's captivating "Four Seasons"; a passionate reimagining of Vivaldi's classic masterpiece through the lens of tango. 

Allow yourself to be captivated by the diverse voices of chamber music, both vocal and instrumental, as they celebrate the beauty and ever-changing nature of the seasons, and musical voices powerful and intimate.
