Portland Chamber Music Festival presents: Songs & Stories

In her second year, PCMF Artistic Director Melissa Reardon takes the summer festival online with four streamed concerts. Staying true to original plans, the concerts feature all the originally contracted musicians, and include many of today’s most innovative and in-demand chamber artists. Festival programs are on August 6, 9, 13 at 7:30 PM. To ensure the widest possible access, all events have a pay-what-you-wish option, and will be presented via YouTube Premiere.

In a co-production with the Peasmarsh Chamber Music Festival, Alan Ridout’s Ferdinand the Bull is performed in the beautiful Church of St. Peter and St. Paul in East Sussex, England. Allison Loggins-Hull is featured in the final composer conversation of the summer season.
