Throughout the Festival week, visitors to Fairchild will be treated to chamber music through open, outdoor rehearsals and surprise concerts during the day. Visitors will have the opportunity to meet and engage the musicians, experiencing music on an intimate and personal level.
The four subscription concerts will feature many musical genres, from Schubert to Mumford & Sons!
GardenMusic’s musical programs are developed by Teddy Abrams, Harrison Hollingsworth and Johnny Teyssier, the members of the Sixth Floor Trio, who met while studying at the Curtis Institute of Music. The extensive educational programming is developed by Gabriel Globus-Hoenich.

"The Edge: Music that pushed the boundaries of its time"
Many of the great works we now consider to be standards caused riots and scandals in their time. Revisit the works that propelled music into new territory; from ancient African drumming and early experiments with notation, or the cutting-edge works of Bach and Beethoven, to music that prompts us to examine tonality and the boundaries of different artistic mediums.
Finale, Sunday, January 19, 2014 at 7:00PM
"A Jazzy Night"
The sounds of jazz can be found infiltrating other genres in unexpected ways. Jazz and Latin musicians join the resident GardenMusic artists for a Miami night of jazz and a nod to composers such as Bela Bartok and Maurice Ravel who were profoundly influenced by the sounds of their time.
