Winslow Homer, 1894

Festival II: Revelations

Saturday, August 21, 2021 | 7:30 PM

Hannaford Hall, USM | Portland 

Revelations takes listeners on a communal musical journey, free from intellectual concepts like genre, era, or even composer. Musicians will offer insights along the way, but the program details won’t be shared until after the concert. Fascinating for the lifelong music aficionado as well as chamber music newbies, this uniquely personal and innovative concert experience explores the pure pleasure of simply listening to great music performed by some of the world’s most in-demand and charismatic chamber artists.
