Norfolk Chamber Music Festival celebrates the legacy of Charles Ives this summer. From insurance actuary to cabby to chemist, this program is dedicated to composers like Ives who also had other jobs.
With its roots as one of the first summer classical musical festivals in North America, the Norfolk Chamber Music Festival celebrates the work and legacy of Connecticut’s own Charles Ives this summer. This program specifically focuses on composers with a side hustle, including Ives, an insurance executive whose work laid the groundwork for the field of estate planning. Also on this program is Borodin, a noted chemist who made some important discoveries in organic chemistry, and Philip Glass, who made ends meet in the 1970s as a taxi driver.PHILIP GLASSBrass SextetCHARLES IVESPiano TrioALEXANDER BORODINString Quartet No. 2 in D MajorWilliam Purvis: hornSerena Canin: violinand Norfolk Fellows
