On Wednesday, July 20, at 7 p.m., the Halcyon Music Festival will perform a program entitled “Bohemian Rhapsody” as part of the Library’s Summer Concert Series. Featuring works by Anton Reicha, Josef Suk, and Antonín Dvořák, the concert will be the third hosted inside the Academy Library on Front Street in Exeter this summer.
From the seacoast region of New Hampshire, the Halcyon Music Festival is composed of over twenty world-class musicians and talented young artists led by artistic director and pianist Heng-Jin Park. Featured musicians include Abel Pereira on horn; Tatjana Mead Chamis and Timothy Deighton on viola; Katherine Manker, Monica Pegis, Irina Muresanu, and Miki-Sophia Cloud on violin; Wendy Warner, David Hardy, and Brian Manker on cello; and Lolita Lisovskaya-Sayevich and Park on piano.
The Halcyon Music Festival aims to make chamber music inviting and accessible to everyone, regardless of age or musical interests. The musicians also spend time supporting the arts in the greater Portsmouth area.
