A private event for our most esteemed Patrons, this cocktail evening with heavy hors d’oeuvres features a private salon concert of the Twickenham Fest artists. Traditionally this event has been held in an historic Twickenham home, however, in recent years increased attendance has required a larger venue.
This year the historic Russell Erskine in downtown Huntsville will host the Summer Soirée. The anticipated programming includes the following:
Susanna Philips, Soprano Harbor Boy Fog Horns, Bassoon Trio
Following at 7:30 p.m. we will be joined by four of classical music's most elite performers for a one-night-only show: Bela Bartok's exquisitely robust composition Sonata for Two Pianos and Percussion. With its Rachmaninov-like clusters of notes in hands, dizzying rhythmic interplay, and Brahms-like structural integrity, it has been said to have forever changed chamber music.
Twickenham Fest Artists
Jason Haahiem, Percussion
Myra Huang, Piano
Steven White, Percussion
Madeline Slettedahl, Piano
This is a private event for patrons giving at the $150 level and above. Save-the-date for our Summer Soirée on Wednesday, August 21.
