Gallery Recitals

Inspired by the art on display the Festival’s faculty and fellows perform in the galleries twice a day. The earlier recitals at 1:30 can pop up anywhere, prepare to be surprised! The 4:30 recitals are more structured but still casual and fill the galleries with extraordinary music. You can take in the whole performance or just a portion. Make sure to put the special festival composer recital held in the Hunter Center at 4:30 PM on Monday, July 25, on your calendar. .
