Michigan City Chamber Music Festival Returns In August

     Three Michigan City Chamber Music Festival Concerts are planned for August 2021 both live and online.
       A live, in-person concert on Thursday, August 12th at 1st Presbyterian Church, Michigan City at 7pm, IN, featuring two stunning works:  First, Festival-favorites Zofia Glashauser and Nic Orbovich will perform the virtuosic, Duo Concertante by Miklos Rozsa. Second, Beethoven’s beloved Seventh Symphony will be performed by a nine-member chamber ensemble featuring Nancy Ambrose King & Jennet Ingle, oboes; William King & Ryan King, clarinets; Trevor King, Jill Dispenza, & Steve Ingle, bassoons; and Kurt Civilette & Anna Mayne, French horns.  
    On Saturday, August 14th, 3:00pm, our second event will take place.  It will be a “virtual” children’s concert, live-streamed from Angela House in Michigan City.  The event will feature a string quartet made up of Festival favorites who will assume the roles of “Musical Heroes: Then and Now.”  Music by Bach, Beethoven, Jimi Hendrix, John Williams and The Avengers will accompany stories of heroes real and fictional!  Some of your favorite superheroes will be featured.  To view, go to “MC Chamber Music Festival Orbovich” on YouTube at concert time. For safety’s sake, there will be no live audience.  
    Sunday, August 15th, at 3:00 pm.  Our annual fund-raiser on Sunday, August 15, at 3:00 pm at the Milton and Sylvia Bankoff Home in Michigan City.  Highlights include a performance of Beethoven’s great “Les Adieux” piano sonata by Robert Auler and a performance of Beethoven’s String Quartet Opus 59 #3 (“The Heroic”) with Zofia Glashauser and Nic Orbovich, violins; Rudolf Haken, viola; and Wesley Baldwin, cello.
    Delicious refreshments will be served.  Plus, a few other surprises! To order tickets for Sunday, contact Judy Jacobi at (219) 873-4560 or judyjacobi@comcast.net or respond to Judy’s recent mailed invitation. Tickets for this event are $100.00 each (for Sunday only). To stream the concert, go to “MC Chamber Music Festival Orbovich” on YouTube at concert time.

   They ask that concert attendees obtain the free tickets to the concert – needed to assure recommended social distancing — either by responding to our recent mailing, or by logging on to their web site, www.mccmf.org. Others who are unable to attend the concert in person can watch it on YouTube at concert-time by logging into YouTube and searching for “MC Chamber Music Festival Orbovich.”
