The traditional summer concert series kicks off this weekend. Following the Actors & Writers workshop on June 26, which features a reading from Shakespeare’s “A Midsummer’s Night Dream,” is a Young People’s Concert the next morning featuring the world-renowned percussion group NEXUS. The Young People’s Concert is free for children; their parents pay $5.
“Two of the four Young People’s Concerts this year have the same artists in the morning working with the children as are performing later in the evening for the adults,” says Segal. “Garry (Kvistad of NEXUS) will bring instruments for the children that even I haven’t seen before. …
“Then that evening, there will be the world premiere of Peter Schickele’s work,” says Segal of Percussion Sonata No. 3, “Maverick,” which was commissioned for Maverick’s centenary by Garry and Diane Kvistad and the Woodstock Chimes Foundation and will be performed by NEXUS.
