Valley of the Moon Music Festival: Virtual Beethoven 2020
Weekends: July 18 – August 2, 2020
During our annual Festival period we will explore some of Beethoven’s smaller chamber works while carefully respecting current health guidelines. These performances will be livestreamed with internationally recognized musicians from the Bay Area, who will carry the spirit of the annual festival until all of our participating artists can join us live in Sonoma in 2021.
VMMF musicians and scholars in the Festival’s Blattner Lecture Series will introduce each concert and provide commentary. Speakers include Nicholas Mathew, author of Political Beethoven and Associate Professor in the Department of Music at UC Berkeley, Nicholas McGegan, former Artistic Director at Philharmonia Baroque Orchestra, and Kate van Orden, Harvard University’s Dwight P. Robinson, Jr. Professor of Music.
Livestreaming at valleyofthemoonmusicfestival.org at 4 p.m. - free, suggested $10 donation
