Newport Classical (formerly Newport Music Festival) announces its 2022 Newport Classical Music Festival, running from July 1-17, 2022. For its 54th season, Newport Classical Music Festival presents 24 concerts over 18 days, and will return for the first time since 2019 to the stunning interiors of Newport's historic mansions and venues including The Breakers, Blithewold Mansion, The Elms, Castle Hill Inn, Chinese Tea House, Great Friends Meeting House, King Park, Newport Art Museum, Norman Bird Sanctuary, Redwood Library & Athenaeum, and Emmanuel Church. The full schedule is available at www.newportclassical.org. Tickets will go on sale to the public on April 11.
Black Oak Ensemble, a string trio boasting three of Chicago's most enterprising and dynamic chamber musicians, makes its Newport debut at The Breakers with an evening of inspired and uplifting works by six promising, early 20th century Jewish composers originally from Austria-Hungary, Czechoslovakia, and the Netherlands. In today's context, the works evoke a sadness of lives lost and potentially unfulfilled, yet there is joy, community, and a familiarity to be found in each composition.
This concert is dedicated to the Bazarsky Family Foundation in recognition of their generous support of Newport Classical.
