Valley of the Moon Music Festival—LOVE AND LONGING: Reaching Across the Distance 

Inspired by the human desire to connect, the chamber music of VMMF’s 7th Annual Season tells stories of separation, longing, and coming together. From Clara Schumann to the American composer Harry Burleigh, the Festival will also feature a series of beautiful art songs. Their magnificent poetry perfectly expresses this year’s themes. The eight Festival concerts build to a hope-filled Finale, a concert celebrating the joy and optimism of youth and renewal. In keeping with our mission, all Festival musicians will play instruments from the period when the music was composed: gut strings rather than steel, and four different period-specific pianos. As is our tradition, VMMF’s Blattner Lecture Series’ dynamic speakers will place the music into historic and social context. Join us to celebrate music and human connection. *VMMF is closely watching all current restrictions and protocols due to the pandemic. We are doing our utmost to keep both musicians and audiences safe.  Masks and social distancing will be required at all times.
