2014 Red Lodge Music Festival opens

The Red Lodge Music Festival opened its 51st year with a day of activities for students and Faculty. More than 200 students from all over Montana and the adjoining states enrolled in this highly regarded week long music camp. Those students receive private instruction from 27 faculty members, representing some of the finest professional musicians in North America. In addition to their teaching and coaching responsibilities, the faculty members present a series of five outstanding concerts, offering music from Vivaldi to the present day. The first of these concerts, on Saturday evening, June 7, comprised a potpourri of pieces for small ensembles and soloists. “An enthusiastic crowd filled the Red Lodge Civic Center to hear great music,” said Betty Hecker, one of the organizers. The last faculty concert will be on Saturday at 7:30 p.m. in the Civic Center. This concert will also feature four students who are part of the “honor ensemble,” these students will perform Robert Schumann’s Quintet in E-flat Major with faculty member Del Parkinson. “The Festival has gotten off to a great start and Red Lodge has come alive with ‘Music in the Mountains,’” she said.
