LUDLOW-Exceptional young musicians from across the country have come to Ludlow to share their music. They will perform in a new concert series at the newly renovated auditorium of the Ludlow Town Hall, 37 Depot St., at 7:30 p.m., July 10.
Joined by members of their renowned faculty, they will perform solo and chamber works for violin, viola, cello, flute, and piano. The concerts are free and the public is invited to hear these talented performers as they prepare for professional careers in music.
Known for its outstanding faculty and intensive yet collaborative musical atmosphere, Okemo Young Artists' Program was established in 2006 by Marko Dreher, Artistic Director and Violin/Viola faculty member, as a successor to the Weathersfield Music Festival, founded by his former teachers, Almita and Roland Vamos.
Aspiring young virtuosos spend four weeks together in focused practicing and individual lessons, chamber music rehearsals and coachings, master classes with internationally renowned guest artists, and multiple public performances.
