Bay Chamber Concerts Summer Screen Door Festival: Abiding Journeys, Day 1

Wednesday, August 17 @ 10:00 am 8:00 pm


The Camden Public Library is proud to once again partner with Bay Chamber Concerts to present their Screen Door Festival under a tent at the historic Camden Amphitheatre, August 17 – 21. Each day begins with Bach for Breakfast, followed by lunchtime concerts and evening performances of much-loved chamber music repertoire, as well as café concerts with adventurous new musical experiences.

This year’s theme is: “Abiding Journeys”

Moving home and away, travels of our imaginations, journeys of empathy, conscience, and resilience – these are adventures that color our lives, sometimes creating pain and sometimes abiding joy. I invite you to explore journeying through great music, through the meandering lives of the composers and the personal journeys of the astonishing featured artists. This year we celebrate the power of live music to transport us to a different and better world. I look forward to seeing you at our concerts and hope your personal Bay Chamber journey this summer will be both beautiful and abiding.

We will have two navigators and hosts for this journey: much-loved pianist and storyteller Pedja Mužijević and the wonderfully informative and erudite harpsichordist, John McKean. They will perform during the 5-part series and will be joined over the week by violinist Geneva Lewis, cellist Gabriel MartinsMaxwell String QuartetPalaver Strings, pianist Conrad Tao and guest flutist, Nicholas Southwick.
