The Peninsula Music Festival’s 2008 February Fest will continue on Tuesday, February 12 with a concert at the Peninsula Art School. The 7 pm concert will feature PMF violinist Marilyn McDonald on baroque violin and associate conductor Stephen Alltop on harpsichord. The concert, entitled Baroque Gems, will feature the music of Biber, Bach, Veracini and Elizabeth Jacquet de la Guerre. General admission seating for this concert is just $30 per person. A reception with the musicians will follow the concert. This concert is partially sponsored by the Peninsula Music Festival Sustaining Committee, the volunteer arm of the festival.
The Peninsula Art School will once again be filled with its “We LOVE Winter” exhibit. For the past two years, the festival has presented a February Fest concert at the art school surrounded by the atmosphere created by the local schools for “We LOVE Winter”.
“The ‘We LOVE Winter’ exhibit adds so much to the music each year,” commented Peninsula Music Festival Executive Director Sharon Grutzmacher. “Concertgoers look forward to entering the winter wonderland and then being surrounded by the sound of beautiful music.”
Music Director and Conductor Victor Yampolsky will also be in town for this concert. Each winter, Maestro Yampolsky travels to Door County to meet with the board of directors, finalize August season plans and meet with the community. Maestro Yampolsky will be welcoming and thanking members of the Peninsula Music Festival’s Legacy Society at a special reception prior to the concert that evening. Legacy Society members are people who have notified the festival that they have named the Peninsula Music Festival in their will or trust.
