Dear Friends:

Chamber music, chamber music, chamber music – days of it at Kneisel Hall – how great is that!?
Join us Monday and Tuesday for back-to-back Gregory Carroll Young Artist Concerts. Our doors are open, the concerts are free – we welcome you. The repertoire is on the website (www.kneisel.org)
Violists alumna Kirsten Monke, (DaPonte String Quartet) and Marcus Thompson (Artistic Director of the Boston Chamber Music Society, NEC, MIT) stopped by to say hello to KH violist Doris Lederer. If you are an alum and in the neighborhood – please stop and say hello.
California fans – Artistic Director Seymour Lipkin is playing the Mozart Concert K. 595 in the San Francisco area Thursday, Friday and Sunday with the MidSummer Mozart Orchestra.
Food is great (especially Chef Zach’s!!) but FREE food is even better.  If your garden is overflowing Zach will be delighted to turn your extra produce (even zucchini) into soups and breads and meals for the musicians. Just drop it off at the Kneisel kitchen or office (36 Main St).
This weekend is the last weekend in 2015 to hear the first session faculty in concert – you don’t want to miss these concerts.
We hope to see you soon and often at Kneisel Hall,
