AMF Concert Season
By Linda Seale
The American Music Festival is proud to announce its chamber music season for
2017-18. This is our 28th season providing exceptional classical chamber music to the
people of Carteret County.
On September 9, a “cello orchestra” will be performing. World renowned cellist Amit
Peled will bring a dynamic ensemble of international cellists to present a wide range
of classical favorites from the Baroque to the contemporary. Included will be works by
Boccherini, Handel, Ligeti, Schubert and Haydn.
The Schumann Quartett will bring the music of Haydn, Barber and Schubert on
November 4. These young artists from the Chamber Music Society of Lincoln Center
create a powerful musical experience that is inspiring.
Our 2018 concerts lead off on January 27 with the Duo Francais featuring Nicolas
Duchamp, a flutist from Paris, accompanied by Barbara McKenzie, pianist. Their
presentation of the music of Taffanel, Gaubert, Debussy, Poulenc and Copland will
introduce listeners to the lush world of French elegance and beauty.
Acronym is a large Baroque string group that will present Vivaldis Four Seasons and
other Italian surprises on February 24.
The final program of the season is April 7. The Calidore Quartet, another group from
the Chamber Music Society of Lincoln Center, will be returning to present a concert
including the music of Tchaikovsky, Janacek, Beethoven and Shaw.
Please note a change of venue. All of these concerts will be held at the First
Presbyterian Church in Morehead City with the exception of the January concert, which
will be held at the History Museum of Carteret County in Morehead City.
All concerts begin at 8 p.m. A season ticket for all five concerts maybe purchased for
$120 by mailing a check to AMF, PO Box 1099, Beaufort NC 28516, or by calling 728-
6152 for more information. Tickets may also be purchased at the door the evening of the
concert for $30 each.
These concerts bring internationally known artists to our area without the need to
fly or drive long distances—and at a very reasonable price. Where else can you find
such value? For more information, call Linda Seale at 726-0478.1 hope to see you at our
