Mingle with the Musicians

Twickenham Fest seeks to ensure the Resident Artists and the Huntsville community develop lasting relationships with one another, and that begins with getting to know the musicians! At the Soirée you'll have the chance to meet the Co-Founders and Resident Artists before the concerts being. Learn why they chose their instrument, about where they've studied, their travels and performances, and more. 


Preview the Music

Every Soirée culminates with a 30-40 minute salon concert by the Resident Artists, including performances by Co-Founders Susanna Phillips and Matthew McDonald. Hear works ranging from familiar quartets by Mozart and Brahms to modern works works with rare instruments - or even humorous party pieces. Regardless of the repertoire, the Fest's incredible musicians will delight your ears in this upclose setting.

Enjoy hors d'oeuvres and a cool beverage

While down in Huntsville, Fest musicians love to share good food with friends and colleagues, and the Paton Soiree is no exception. Heavy hors d'oeuvres and a full bar along with softer drinks complete the evening. Offerings for dietary restrictions are also available, and specific needs can always be discussed with a Fest team member when you're making your RSVP.
