  • On Opening Night, marvel at jaw-dropping virtuosos double-bassist Xavier Foley and violinist Tai Murray, who perform separately, and then together, in a Festival commission by award-winning composer Derek Bermel for bass, violin, and actor. The Festival Artistic Directors start off the evening with Mendelssohn’s luminous Variations for Cello and Piano, and the program closes with Ralph Vaughan Williams’ ravishing, romantic Piano Quintet.
