Festival Director Alex McDonald has programmed another fantastic Festival for our audiences. The free concert series opens July 7 with Rising Star Recitalist Noah Yi, clarinet, and the Feature Performance showcases a trio with Dallas-based musicians Grace Kang Wollett, violin; Danny Goldman, clarinet; and Mikahil Berestnev, piano. On July 14, the Rising Star will be the grand prize winner of the SMU Institute for Young Pianists concerto competition. The Feature Performance continues the afternoon of piano music, with Evan Mitchell and Jonathan Tsay performing “piano four hands” (which is two pianists sharing one instrument). July 21 will begin with Rising Star Ishan Loomba, a 2019 Junior Cliburn competitor. The Feature Performance is a string quartet with Fort Worth Symphony Orchestra connections. The Festival will conclude on July 28 with a Rising Star duo: Anais Feller, violin, and Ella Tran, piano. The Feature Performance boasts a flute quartet led by Margaret Fischer, flute.
