This time, we welcome alumni of the Festival String Fellowship to play a variety of works for string orchestra, including the popular Dvořák Serenade for Strings and Bartók's zesty Romanianian Folk Dances. Fellowship alum Kyle Dickson, who's gone on to conduct orchestras across the United States, leads the ensemble in this happy reunion. In addition, this concert features several vocal soloists from the Festival's Vocal Fellowship program.


This concert is generously made possible by the Paul M. Angell Family Foundation.
The Festival’s Fellowships are graciously supported by Peter and Lucy Ascoli, the Dr. Scholl Foundation, Colleen and Lloyd Fry and the Lloyd A. Fry Foundation, Barbara Dana Klein, Nancy Meyerson (In Memory of Al Lewis), and the Sandra and Earl J. Rusnak, Jr. Cello Fellowship Fund.
