The Masterworks Festival kicks off later this week in Winona Lake, Ind. The month-long classical performing arts training program for young people is sponsored by the Christian Performing Artists Association. Throughout the next few weeks, students and faculty will perform throughout Winona Lake on a regular basis.
First on the schedule are two concerts that are part of Chamber Week. On Friday, June 22, the program includes Brahms, Variations on a Theme by Haydn, Dvorak: Quintet for Piano and Strings, and Shostakovich: String Quartet No. 7. The concert on Saturday, June 23 includes Mozart: Quartet for Piano and Strings, Schumann: Quintet for Piano and Strings, and Mendelssohn: Octet for Double String Quartet. The weekend concludes with a faculty recital on Sunday night.
All concerts are at Rodeheaver Auditorium at 7:30 p.m. unless otherwise noted.
In addition, students will often play “gigs” throughout the day in the Village of Winona and there will be weekday afternoon faculty recitals.
The month-long festival continues through Sunday, July 21 with dozens of full-scale, chamber, solo, and master class performances each week–all open to the public and without admission charge.
