After an extended hiatus due to the pandemic, Chamber Music Sedona is excited to announce that it will present a series of concerts from May 1-8, 2021 as part of its Spring Festival. The concerts will take place at locations throughout Sedona and will celebrate the return of Chamber Music Sedona’s programming with exhilarating performances by world-renowned artists. In order to allow ample space for social distancing, there will be two performances each of the Saturday concerts: at 2 p.m. and again at 5 p.m. on May 1 and 8. Attendees will also be asked to wear masks at all events.

-Concert I, “The Return”- at the Hilton Hotel – Main Ballroom, 90 Ridge Trail Dr, Sedona, AZ 86351 on 5/1 at 2pm and 5pm

On May 1 at the Hilton Hotel, 90 Ridge Trail Dr., Sedona, Ariz. 86351, the first concert of the Spring Festival will highlight the theme of returning with a powerful and moving program of music that spans six countries. A quartet featuring pianists Adam Golka and Michael Brown, violinist Bella Hristova, and cellist (and Chamber Music Sedona Artistic Director) Nick Canellakis will perform works by Beethoven, Dvorak and more.

-Concert II, Fundraiser: The Paul Neubauer Gypsy Band - Held in a Private Home on 5/5 at 5pm.

The next concert of the Spring Festival, a fundraiser for Chamber Music Sedona, will take place at 5 p.m. on May 5 in a private home. Legendary violist Paul Neubauer, joined by a group of acclaimed chamber musicians, will charm and delight audiences with a sizzling program of works by Schulenberg, Valdez and more. Neubauer’s exceptional musicality and effortless playing have led The New York Times to call him “a master musician.” Appointed principal violist of the New York Philharmonic at age 21, he has appeared as soloist with over 100 orchestras worldwide. Neubauer is a two-time Grammy nominee and serves as the Artistic Director of New Jersey’s Mostly Music series, as well as on the faculty of The Juilliard School and Mannes College.

-Concert III, “Heart String Masterpieces” – at The Collective Sedona, 7000 AZ-179, Sedona, AZ 86351 on 5/8 at 2pm and 5pm

The “Heart String Masterpieces” concert will close out the Spring Festival with grandeur, featuring two of the great romantic works for strings: Mendelssohn’s heartbreaking Quartet in A minor, and Brahms’s symphonic String Quintet no. 2, one of the richest and most satisfying works in the repertoire. Performed by violinist Arnaud Sussmann, violist/violinist Tien-Hsin Cindy Wu, and other names well-known to Chamber Music Sedona audiences, this concert will be held outdoors at The Collective Sedona, 7000 AZ-179, Sedona, Ariz. 86351, at 2 p.m. and 5 p.m. on May 8.
