July 4th

Dear Friends,

How does Kneisel Hall celebrate the 4th of July?
The same way ‘one gets to Carnegie Hall’ – practice, practice, practice!
Work is in full swing and practice/rehearse is what we do at Kneisel Hall –
day and night, weekend and week day. And you, our audiences get the benefit.

The first master class of the season will be given by Ronald Copes this Wednesday at 7:30.
It will be your first opportunity to hear the 2016 young artists on the KH stage. Their first session
repertoire is on the website.

This weekend after each Festival Concert the faculty will return to the stage and answer questions. If there is something you always wanted to know about a particular piece or you have some Kneisel Hall thoughts bring them along.

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