The White Lake Chamber Music Festival

August 2, 4:00 pm - August 10, 12:00 am

The remarkable strength, character, and history of the White Lake Chamber Music Festival continues to impact the White Lake area as it enters the 15th season of presenting an impressive array of exceptional performances! Excellent programming, world-class artists, and inspiring classical music performances will take place from August 2 – 10, 2024 in the White Lake area. What once was mostly found only in metropolitan cities, is now a yearly experience in the White Lake area.

The Festival’s new Artistic Director, Marina Hoover, is taking the Festival to new heights with exciting programming and bringing together a new array of musicians. Each evening performance will feature a unique combination of music and performers. While some concerts will be centered around a theme, others will be a splendid potpourri – all will showcase fine talent and inspiring music!

New to the 2024 Festival will be two fun-filled Family Concerts. The first Family Concert features “The Carnival of the Animals”, a humorous musical suite of fourteen movements with narration showcasing animals represented by different instruments, by the French composer Camille Saint-Saëns. The second Family Concert, “Enchanting Musical Stories”, will feature Peter and the Wolf – a symphonic folk tale written by the Russian composer Sergei Prokofiev and the Sorcerer’s Apprentice. Children’s imaginations will come alive as they are captivated by the dramatic story telling and enticing music.

The Grand opening night of the 2024 Festival entitled “Ah! Schubert!”, is packed with some of the best loved music: Schubert’s Piano Sonata D.664, Schubert’s Shepherd on the Rock for clarinet, soprano, and piano, Erlkönig D328 and Die Forelle Op. 32, D 550, and the finale – Schubert’s Trout Quintet!

Every evening concert is rich in offerings: Mozart Clarinet Quintet, Dover Beach Op. 3 for Voice and String Quartet by Samuel Barber, Shostakovich Piano Quintet, Mozart Kegelstatt Trio, Dvorak Piano Quintet No. 2, and so much more. Ending the Festival will be “The Heart & Soul of Russia” featuring music of Rachmaninoff and Tchaikovsky with a grand finale of Souvenir de Florence Op.70 Sextet by Tchaikovsky.

Daily 4pm Salon Concerts at the Book Nook & Java Shop return with an exciting variety: Dulcimer Diversions featuring Collins Trier performing original compositions, traditional folk and bluegrass, and musical storytelling; a Student Recital showcasing area piano, voice, and instrumental students; Jasmine Lin and Emily Nebel will perform a Violin Duo Recital; returning singers Angela De Venuto, soprano; Leo Radosavljevic, bass will present “Music and Letters by Clara and Robert Schumann”; Russian clarinetist Sergey Gutorov will perform works by Carl Maria Von Weber, Poulenc, Debussy, and more; and retired Chicago Symphony violist Bob Swan and Blue Lake Radio Host Foley Schuler will share on “Melodies That Touch You Forever”, music of Mozart, Rachmaninoff, and Tchaikovsky!

A well-received addition to last year’s Festival is making a comeback with a different twist! “Cabaret Night: Broadway Comes to White Lake” at the Book Nook & Java Shop will wrap up the 2024 Festival on August 10 with a grand celebration featuring singers Angela De Venuto and Leo Radosavljevic.

This year’s eight-day festival is packed with so many exciting offerings: no cost daily 4PM Salon Concerts at the Book Nook & Java Shop, a children’s concert, a children’s recital, meet and greets, and Cabaret Night “Broadway Comes to White Lake”. There will once again be the world’s greatest music wonderfully played, combined with the soft summer weather, beaches, and spectacular sunsets. All of this makes the White Lake Chamber Music Festival a vacation destination for an ever-growing audience from near and far.

The generous support of individuals and businesses makes it possible to bring great artists and great music to the White Lake area. For sponsorship opportunities, please contact Director Sondra Cross (231-329-3056) for more information.
