Many of your favorite stars are returning for 2013—Mara Gearman, Jing Wang, Paul Wiancko, Kevin Krentz, Serena McKinney, Yuri Namkung, and Craig Sheppard, plus many artists new to the Festival. All the artists appreciate the warm reception afforded their performances at Signal Hill Ranch, as well as the hospitality of our local housing volunteers who open their homes to the artists during their stay.
We hope you drop by to experience the incredible acoustics, breathtaking outdoor scenery, and good spirits of the audience and players.
Kevin Krentz, Artistic Director
Thank you to everyone involved in this year's fabulous festival. Particularly gratifying for me is the continuing development of our community atmosphere. The musicians tell me our festival has an energy that none can match.
See you again this summer.
For Your Comfort
Seat cushions will be available for rental (or for saving your seat!) at the ticket table outside the barn. Proceeds benefit the festival. We hope this helps everyone enjoy a comfortable evening of fabulous music.
Donors of $250 of more will receive seat cushions courtesy of the board for themselves and their party.
Seattle University Quartet
The festival is pleased to host a visit by the very talented young musicians in the Seattle University Quartet, thanks to a grant from the Betti Foundation. These college-age students will perform at venues around the valley, attend coaching sessions with the festival artists, and interact with local musicians at the Pipestone music camp.
