Music by the Bay
July 20, 2014
South Shore Conservatory presents the ninth season of the Duxbury Music Festival (DMF), with DMF faculty and student performances from July 20 through August 1. The DMF is an intensive program for solo and chamber instrumental performance, unique to all of New England. Founded with the knowledge that music enriches the human spirit and upon the belief that this enrichment endures, DMF brings faculty and students from around the world to the idyllic seaside community of Duxbury, thirty-five miles south of Boston and twenty miles north of Cape Cod. DMF is a 16-day intensive program for the study and performance of solo and chamber repertoires for undergraduate and graduate students and adult professionals. Spectacular performances open to the public culminate the training these accomplished musicians receive during the Festival. Festival Director, Stephen Deitz and a renowned faculty offer chamber performances, as well as individual instruction and ensemble coaching. Both Festival faculty and students perform in concerts in public and private venues, from the Duxbury Town Green and The Ellison Center for the Arts to beautiful seaside homes and barns. DMF has tremendous community support, involving over 150 volunteers and over 2000 patrons each season. Mozart’s Sinfonia Concertante will be performed by the 1st place winner of the 2013 Solo Competition, Christine Choi, and the 2nd place winner of the 2013 Concerto Competition, Min Choi, along with DMF and SSC Faculty. This event is a lawn concert under a tent, followed by reception. Shuttle Service begins at 5:30 pm at South Shore Conservatory. Sponsored by Diane and Sherm Hoyt. Tickets for all events will be available beginning June 1. A variety of series subscriptions are available for purchase.
