Message from the Artistic Directors

June 5, 2020 – It is our immense pleasure to announce plans for our special 20th season celebration. We’re sure it comes as no surprise that this year’s festival will have to be a little different from future ones when we can all truly come together again.

Like arts organizations around the world, the global pandemic has stretched us to consider everything Tuckamore is, beyond live music performance. So, with both the limitations and opportunities of technology in mind, we have worked hard to find exciting new ways to celebrate and feature different facets of our festival – new music creation, a 20 year legacy of outstanding young artist alumni achievement, as well as engagement, education, and enrichment – in order to share online the art and community of chamber music.

Across ten days this August, through live streamed and only-for-Tuckamore curated performances, we’ll present alumni all stars and wonderful artists who can continue to make chamber music inside their bubbles. Our online festival will also feature new works by talented young artist composers, the entertaining and informative Tuckamore Talks series with Joe Argentino, several world premieres by Juno and Grammy nominated composers, as well as lots of opportunities for synchronous audience interaction with artists. A festival sure to move your spirit and create community and connection through music we all treasure.

We remain grateful for the rich world of chamber music and for you, our Tuckamore audiences, for your enthusiasm and support over the years. We hope you’ll join us once again in August – as we’re sure you’ll agree, twenty years of Tuckamore is worth celebrating!
