The Amelia Island Chamber Music Festival, recognized as one of the nation’s premier classical music events, is running from May 13 – June 8 this year. Christopher Rex, principal cellist with the Atlanta Symphony, is Artistic and General Director. A galaxy of international stars and outstanding emerging talent perform in a variety of intimate venues in and around Amelia Island. Guest artists this season included cellist Lynn Harrell, violinist Pinchas Zukerman, the Four Nations Ensemble, the Linden String Quartet, and on the lighter side, fiddler and composer April Verch in an old-fashioned hoedown.
There’s one last chance to hear a concert this season, Friday June 8th. The program, titled From Our Family to Yours, promises to be outstanding! And the drive up A1A from Jacksonville to Fernandina is beautiful.
