Dear Friends,

They are in Maine! The young artists and the faculty: Ronald Copes, David Bowlin, Laurie Smukler, violinists; Doris Lederer, violist; Dmitry Kouzov, Joel Krosnick and pianists Jane Coop and Anna Polonsky – music is EVERYWHERE.

The Program for Maine Students was a roaring success – thank you to the faculty Patricia Stowell Director, Marisa Solomon and Scott Woolweaver and all the Maine musicians.
Next year’s dates are June 17 – 24, 2017. Practice, practice, practice gets you to Kneisel Hall.

We hope to see you soon and often at Kneisel Hall,
Ellen Werner, Executive Director
