The twelfth Seal Bay Festival of American Chamber Music
will be in July 7-12, 2014.
The festival’s goal is to make American chamber music a living experience for concert audiences, artists and school children in a geographical and cultural setting (the year-round population of coastal Maine) otherwise little served by exposure to contemporary music. All repertoire is prepared rigorously in collaboration between composers and per-formers in an intense but idyllic setting during the first week of the festival, and the same repertoire is performed (and recorded) at every concert. Further, every venue is designed to make the public’s encounter with composers and performers as relaxed and personal as possible, while maintaining the highest standards of excellence in performance.
