Message from the Artistic Directors
As the final chords from the Finale still resonate in our minds and hearts, we want to extend a wholehearted thank you to all of you that came out to the 2017 Tuckamore Festival. From André Laplante’s exquisite and powerful Opening Night performance to the passionate and committed performances by our Young Artists at the Festival Finale, we hope our evening concerts, world premieres, masterclasses, lunch time recitals, late night at the Rocket, workshops, and children’s concert made your summer a bit more magical.
We certainly treasured these two weeks and find there are almost too many highlights to mention; André Laplante riveting and transcendent Chopin Sonata, Jonathan Monro’s tremendous talents, the Rolston’s fabulous Schumann quartet, three exciting new trios by our Young Artist composers, the wit of Christopher Hall, the premiere of Alice Ho and Lisa Moore’s new Your Daughter Fanny, and the rich and beautiful playing of Scott St. John and Sharon Wei, to name just a few. And we certainly won’t forget the joy it was to work with our talented and deeply committed Young Artists. What a wonderful group of young people!
The support and enthusiasm from our audiences means a tremendous amount too and without it, of course, there would be no Tuckamore! Thank you again for being part of this year’s festival.
-Nancy Dahn and Timothy Steeves, Artistic Directors
