Geneva Music Festival 2020 A MUSICAL OFFERING

GMF is excited to announce a series of musical events, our gift during a time of crisis, presented in virtual format, with a line-up of new concerts and programs by GMF artists and composers.

Our robust online programming provides GMF audiences with interaction with world-class musicians and music during our time of separation. Through digital technology, GMF patrons and global audiences can experience performances by cellist Clive Greensmith, violinist Jinjoo Cho, and the Latin jazz band La Voz de Tres. Audiences can interact directly with two Pulitzer Prize-winning composers, Jennifer Higdon and Shulamit Ran, and discuss the music of Florence Price with one of her 21st-century champions, pianist Michelle Cann. Violinist Ani Kavafian will share stories of her long and varied career as one of America’s most prominent chamber musicians. Our mission of community engagement continues through an online masterclass with the students from St. Peters Community Arts Academy as well as a series of video lectures for Geneva City School District students and staff, the Boys and Girls Club, Geneva YMCA and other groups.

Programs will be presented on several different online platforms—YouTube, Zoom, and Facebook.

Go to our season section of our website for instructions on how to connect with each event.

All events will be available on YouTube following their premieres, and shared with schools and retirement communities throughout the Finger Lakes.
