Newport Music Festival

The Newport Music Festival 2010 celebrates its 42nd season July 9–25, continuing the tradition of presenting unique chamber music programs, American debuts, world-class artists and special events in the Gilded Age “summer cottages” of Newport, Rhode Island. Entering his thirty-sixth season, Artistic Director Dr. Mark P. Malkovich, III researches and selects works from the 19th century chamber music, vocal repertoire and the Romantic-era piano literature, to create one of the most extraordinary festivals in the world. In its forty-one year history, the Newport Music Festival has become celebrated for presenting over one hundred thirty artists and ensembles in their American debuts. Yamaha Pianos and Your New England Toyota Dealer are the major Festival sponsors. The Festival will present 58 concerts—three to five per day—in the famous Newport Mansions with 50 American and international artists from 24 countries. Season-long tributes to the bi-centennials of composers Frédéric François Chopin and Robert Schumann will feature their incredible music. Morning concerts are at 11 a.m., afternoons usually at 4 p.m. and evenings at The Breakers, the queen of the Newport Mansions, at 9 p.m. Midnight concerts feature one-hour intermission-free works with champagne receptions preceding. The Festival was again selected for “America’s Elite 1000—the Ultimate List,” the very best American luxury goods, shops, services and special events; it ha also been named one of the “Top 50 Outstanding Festivals & Events” in North America by Leisure Group Travel magazine. We’re planning one of our “most festive of festivals” [Bernard Levin, London Times]. Morning and afternoon concerts are being given the names of international toasts, e.g. “Cheers!,” “Skål,” “Salud,” “Zdorovie,” etc. More than 500 compositions are included in the morning and afternoon concerts, many of which are unusual and seldom played. This has been our hallmark. For further information and brochure requests, kindly write the Newport Music Festival, PO Box 3300, Newport, RI 02840-0992, or phone 401-846-1133.
