About Twickenham Fest
Twickenham Fest is a premiere summer chamber music festival in Huntsville, Alabama. In 2010, co-founders Susanna Phillips and Matthew McDonald came together to bring the best young classical musicians to Huntsville. Each year, the Fest brings into Huntsville several Artists in Residence to engage students and adults in Engagement and Education events and perform concerts that are FREE to the public.
What's being said about Twickenham Fest?
"Robust, adventurous..." says Michael Huebner (The Birmingham News, AL.com) of the all-Schubert concert August, 30, 2013.
"The composer's sparse-textured scoring released a flood of profound emotions, heightened by Matthew McDonald's plaintive bassoon solos and soprano Susanna Phillips' sensitive rendering of the text."
