Live Chamber Music Concert Outdoors at the Lounsbury House on August 12!

Please join us for a LIVE chamber music concert - Wednesday, August 12 at 6:30 PM, outdoors at Lounsbury House on Main Street in Ridgefield!

The Charles Ives Music Festival presents “HORIZON”, performed by a marvelous string quartet comprised of CIMF guest artists Julia Choi, Molly Goldman, Mitch Lyon, and Easton-raised Chelsea Starbuck Smith. They will perform a beautiful, creative program of music by composers Caroline Shaw, Florence Price, Carlos Simon, Jessie Montgomery, Christopher Theofanidis, Paul Frucht and Antonín Dvořák.

“It fills me with immense joy to have my first concert since the start of the pandemic be back in Connecticut,” says Ms. Smith. “I grew up in Easton, CT and whenever I get the chance to perform or teach close to home I jump at it. The students of CIMF are the highlight of my summer, and even though we cannot be together as usual, I am excited to perform for them {and the public} from a safe distance!”

The concert is FREE to attend and the rain date is the following evening, August 13th. Bring your lawn chairs or blankets and enjoy wonderful live music safely. The concert will be approximately an hour in length.
