How often does the Executive Director of a festival have a chance to perform onstage? And how often is that work commissioned by one of the world’s leading composers? Anita Orne joins the Miró Quartet in Earthrise for saw and string quartet, written by Jake Heggie in honor of William Anders in reflection of his iconic photograph taken from Apollo 8. Also in a festival first, new guest violinist Benjamin Beilman joins Jon Kimura Parker in the stunning Schubert Fantasie. The festival concludes in grand fashion with Tchaikovsky’s triumphant Souvenir of Florence!
Tickets: $39 – $10 students
