A New Name, A New Season, Same Great Cow

A New Name, A New Season, Same Great Cow

The Cooperstown Summer Music Festival is bringing 8 jazz and classical concerts July 3 – August 28 to The Farmers’ Museum and the Otesaga Resort Hotel. This is the 13th season for the Festival, which was founded by artistic director Linda Chesis. Until this year, the Festival was known as the Cooperstown Chamber Music Festival. The name was changed to reflect the range of music it offers, from early music to contemporary, classical to jazz.

The Festival kicks off July 3 at 3 pm with the National Jazz Museum in Harlem All Stars featuring Loren Schoenberg. This is an all-American way to celebrate Independence Day weekend. Concert goers are encouraged to come early to enjoy events and exhibits at The Farmers’ Museum and the Fenimore Art Museum.

The season continues with a Bastille Day celebration with Music from Copland House July 14; jazz sensation Kurt Elling July 29; a free Flute Fest concert on August 4; Boston Comes to Cooperstown, featuring members of the Boston Symphony Orchestra, on August 10; the American String Quartet and Linda Chesis, August 15; the East Coast Chamber Orchestra, August 21; and the Juilliard String Quartet August 28. All concerts begin at 7:30 pm, except for our new Sunday afternoon series, which begins at 3 pm on July 3, August 21 and August 28.

The Festival appreciates the help of fellow Chamber members in getting the word out about our concerts, which are just some of the many great reasons to enjoy living in or visiting Cooperstown. Please visit our web site for more details,, find our page on Facebook, or follow us on Twitter @CoopMusicFest.
