Meadowmount Student Quartets in Ballard Park
August 4, 2015 @ 7:30 pm
Join us for beautiful, classical chamber music with Meadowmount Quartets!
Talented students from Meadowmount School of Music will bring an evening of classical chamber music to Ballard Park. Meadowmount students range from the ages of eight to thirty and hail from around the world to study at this prestigious summer school, now celebrating its 72nd season. Esteemed Meadowmount alumni include Joshua Bell, Kyung-Wha Chung, Lynn Harrell, Jaime Laredo, Yo-Yo Ma, Pinchas Zuckerman and Itzhak Perlman.
In addition to their twentieth annual concert at the Ballard Park, the students of Meadowmount hold three concerts a week as part of their education. These concerts are also open to the public at Meadowmount’s lovely facilities. To find out more about either the school or its concerts, information can be found at www.meadowmount.com.
Donations are requested to keep these performances available to the public. Please bring a lawn chair or a blanket and enjoy the music and scenery! In case of rain the concerts will be held at “The Westport Heritage House” across from Ballard Park.
