Music enthusiasts got a sneak preview of the Methow Valley Chamber Music Festival’s upcoming 2017 program last Saturday when the Serendipity String Quartet from Seattle performed at TwispWorks as part of the festival’s outreach program.
The quartet played outdoors at the new TwispWorks plaza under a protective awning. They were greeted by a sizable crowd taking in one of the first public events at the new plaza.
The free mini-concert, billed as “Chamber Music 101,” included a presentation by the festival’s Artistic Director Kevin Krentz about the origins and evolution of chamber music.
The Serendipity String Quartet was born in 2015, when two Seattle Philharmonic Orchestra violinists “serendipitously” reunited after discovering they had attended the same elementary school.
Season tickets are on sale for the 2017 Methow Valley Chamber Music Festival, which will be staged at Signal Hill Ranch between Twisp and Winthrop July 27 – Aug. 5. To purchase tickets, visit www.methowmusicfestival.org.
