The Astoria Music Festival will celebrate its Fourteenth Anniversary this summer. Over one hundred performers and young artists will gather in historic Astoria, Oregon for seventeen performances of synmphonic and chamber music, educational events, and two operas.
Dwight Caswell, President of the Board of Directors states, "We are excited to present one of the biggest and most challenging festivals in our short fourteen-year history. Artistic Director Keith Clark has assembled a remarkable roster of international artists and varied repertoire, and we invite music lovers to visit our historic town to experience our motto: "Big City Music - Small Town Prices = Victorian Charm".
Vocal highlights include appearances by acclaimed American soprano ANGELA MEADE as Leanora in Verdi's Il Trovatore, reprising her role that caused a recent sensation at the Metropolitan Opera. She will be joined by three MET veterans, tenor CAMERON SCHUTZA as Manrico, mezzo-soprano MARYANN McCORMICK as Azucena, and Portland's own RICHARD ZELLER as Count di Luna.
Instrumental highlights includ the Northwest Premier of Philip Glass' expansive Symphony No. 4, based on music of David Bowie's recording "Heroes".
