The popular Palm Beach Chamber Music Festival turns 20 this year. The festival opens July 8 and runs for four weekends at Helen K. Persson Recital Hall at Palm Beach Atlantic University on Fridays (5 minutes walking distance from Grandview Gardens), Eissey Campus Theatre at Palm Beach State College in Palm Beach Gardens on Saturdays; and the Crest Theatre at Old Schoold Square in Delray Beach on Sundays. The festival is truly an oasis in the parched Summer season, which is mostly void of classical music. The repertoire includes rarely heard and familiar pieces and covers a range of styles, instrumentations and periods. Works from Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart, Philippe Gaubert, Arnold Schoenberg, Eugene Bozza, Eric Ewazen, Bohuslav Martinu, Robert Muczynski, Franz Schubert, Peter Warlock, Johann Sebastian Bach and Igor Stravinsky will be performed. Tickets are $ 25 for a single performance or $ 85 for a subscription. For more information, go the the Palm Beach Chamber Music Festival website at www.pbcmf.org.
Grandview Gardens is also offering a special package for out of town visitors attending the music festival. For more information, click here.
