Festivals at Rockport Music



Barry Shiffman, Artistic Director

David Deveau, Artistic Director Emeritus

The Rockport Chamber Music Festival 2018, the first under the artistic direction of Barry Shiffman, opened on Friday, June 15 and continues through Sunday, July 15, and encompasses a dramatic theme—r:EVOLUTION.  Embracing the history of delivering both world-class artists and young rising stars, Rockport Music launches the Rockport Fellows program bringing violinist Danny Koo, pianist Tony Yang and a special Rockport Fellowship Quartet of young artists—who will be involved in mainstage concerts as well as bring music to the community through pop-up concerts, family concerts, and other activities.  A new late-night concert series—Classical Cabaret—will feature a casual, intimate setting on the Performance Center’s third floor.
