Sunday, July 30

Valley of the Moon Music Festival
The third annual Valley of the Moon Music Festival celebrates the world of Robert Schumann over three consecutive weekends, July 16–30, juxtaposing the composer’s own compositions with chamber works by composers he idolized and championed. The festival continues: Conversations With Kate: “Schumann—The Composer As Journalist” Robert Schumann wrote passionately throughout his life: editorials, reviews, letters, and personal journals, including a “marriage journal” kept with Clara. This lunchtime conversation explores his favorite musicians, from his fictional friends in the Davidsbündler, sworn to combat philistinism, to Paganini, Chopin, and the up-and-coming Johannes Brahms, who ultimately threatened to steal Clara’s heart. Come discuss the musical genius at the center of this year’s festival with Kate van Orden and festival musicians.
