Music from Copland House to Perform in Cooperstown for Bastille Day

[Cooperstown, NY
July 8, 2011] The ensemble Music from Copland House will perform in a Bastille Day Celebration concert July 14 at 7:30 pm at the Otesaga Resort Hotel in Cooperstown, as part of the Cooperstown Summer Music Festival.

This award-winning ensemble will perform works by French composers (Debussy, Ravel, and Poulenc) and composers they inspired (Copland, Piazzolla, and Martinu).

The New York Times hails Music from Copland House for its “bracing and beguiling, incisive and exciting performances. It was all exuberance and bright sunshine.”

Music from Copland House, the resident ensemble at Aaron Copland’s landmark, longtime New York home, features Michael Boriskin, piano; Tim Fain, violin; Wilhelmina Smith, cello and Linda Chesis, flute. Since its triumphant New York debut as the Opening Night of Merkin Hall’s 1999-2000 season, Music from Copland House has come to occupy a special place on the U.S. musical scene as perhaps this country’s only American repertory ensemble, ranging widely through 150 years of our nation’s rich musical legacy.

Concert tickets are available online,; by phone through Brown Paper Tickets, 800.838.3006, or at the door, as available. Tickets are $25 for adults; $15 for students 6-18.

The Festival, under the artistic direction of flutist Linda Chesis, continues with the Kurt Elling Quartet with John McLean (7/29), Flute Fest (8/4), Boston comes to Cooperstown with the BSO’s Keisuke Wakao and Alexander Velinzon (8/10), the American String Quartet (8/15), the East Coast Chamber Orchestra (8/21), and the Juilliard String Quartet (8/28). Concerts are held in the Louis C. Jones Center of The Farmers’ Museum (8/10 and 8/28) and in the ballroom of the Otesaga Resort Hotel (7/14, 7/29, 8/4, 8/15 and 8/21).

The Cooperstown Chamber Music Festival is made possible in part with public funds from the New York State Council on the Arts, a state agency.
