They opened their home to the community and engaged the very best musicians from around the world to perform for Norfolk audiences. Today their estate continues to be a haven where families and friends can escape the daily grind to enjoy music in a beautiful setting.</p><p>On behalf of the Yale School of Music and the Artists, Fellows and Staff of the Norfolk Chamber Music Festival, welcome to the Battell Stoeckel Estate. If you are visiting for the first time, please be sure to say hello; and to our returning friends, it is great to see you again!</p><p>This summer our featured composer is Charles Ives (1874-1954) courtesy of grants from the National Endowment for the Arts and the Charles Ives Society. Perhaps the most important composer in the history of American music, Ives is very much a local personality. Born in Danbury, Connecticut, he graduated from Yale, and spent most of his adult life in Hartford as a partner at Ives &amp; Myrick, then the largest insurance agency in the country. </p><p>We are hosting some very special guest Artists: The Kings Singers (June 12) and the Philharmonia Baroque Orchestra (August 15 -- please note the special Monday night concert). They are joined by the Tokyo Quartet and our favorite Norfolk Artists who have put together a wonderful series of programs for us. We are especially pleased to welcome the renowned </p><p>Artis Quartet to Norfolk for the first time (July 15, 16 and 23). If you have a moment to glance at their biography in the back of the program book, you will see they have performed in just about every major venue in the world.</p><p>As always, the heart of our program will be the Young Artists Performance Series, Thursday evenings at 7:30 pm and Saturday mornings at 10:30 am (also the first two Tuesdays in August at 7:30 pm). Some of the best young musicians from around the globe will be in residence. You can hear them free of charge all summer! You are also invited on Wednesday evenings to our free informal In Context talks or to the popular Listening Club sessions with Jim Nelson. And dont forget Family Day at the Festival, Sunday, July 31. We will begin with a childrens concert at 2:00 pm, followed by a performance by the United States Coast Guard Band at 4:00 pm. Both concerts will be free of charge, and ice cream (also free!) will be served.</p><p>Away from the concert hall, we are very pleased that phase two of the renovation of the Battell familys historic home, Whitehouse, is beginning this summer. The work is part of our ongoing effort to preserve and restore the estate so that future generations can appreciate its beauty and enjoy great music as our patroness, Ellen Battell Stoeckel, wished. </p><p>Before closing I should mention that, in keeping with our early American theme, the cover artist this year is Thomas Moran (1837-1926). His career, like that of Charles Ives, was devoted to adapting European techniques and traditions to specifically American subjects. His A Pond in the Meadow is part of the Battell-Stoeckel collection. </p><p>As you settle into your seat, I want to extend our most sincere thanks to the volunteers, donors and patrons who have helped make our season possible. And a very special thanks to you for joining us tonight in this century-old tradition of Music Among Friends.</p><p>Paul Hawkshaw,Festival Director,June 2011.</p><p>D I R E C T O R SW E L C O M E</p><p>3D i r e c t o r s We l c o m e</p></li><li><p>JACOBSPILLOWD A N C EFESTIVAL 2011June 18 August 28</p><p> the dance center of the nation The New York Times</p><p>Visit online for artist videos.

Chamber music and choral concerts in their 35room mansion, Whitehouse, were the beginning of the Festival that, by the turn of the century, was already considered one of the countrys most prestigious. As audiences grew, the Stoeckels commissioned New York architect, E.K. Rossiter, to design the larger and acoustically superior Music Shed. Dedicated in 1906, to this day the hall retains all of its original glory and stunning acoustics. It has remained essentially unchanged since its stage was graced by such renowned musicians as Fritz Kreisler, Sergei Rachmaninoff and Jean Sibelius. Upon her death in 1939, Ellen Battell Stoeckel left her estate in a private trust with instructions that the facilities be used for Yale Universitys summer music school, ensuring an enduring artistic legacy. Now in its 70th season, the Norfolk Chamber Music Festival Yale School of Music has a dual teaching/performance purpose. Audiences from around the country come to northwest Connecticut to hear worldclass artists, such as the seventime Grammy nominee Tokyo String Quartet, which has been in residence since 1976. Boris Berman, Claude Frank, Peter Frankl, David Shifrin, William Purvis, Frank Morelli, Ani Kavafian and artists from around the world perform as part of a series of more than 30 concerts </p><p>over a nineweek period. These professional musicians also serve as teachers and mentors to the Fellows who come to Norfolk each year to study. Young instrumentalists, singers, conductors and composers are selected through a highly competitive international admissions process to spend their summer participating in the intensive program of coaching, classes and performances. They are exposed to every aspect of their future profession: their colleagues, their mentors, and most importantly, their audience. Alumni of the Norfolk program include Alan Gilbert, Richard Stoltzman, Frederica von Stade, Pamela Frank, the Eroica Trio, So Percussion, eighth blackbird, and the Ying, Mir, Shanghai, Saint Lawrence, Cavani, Calder and Jasper quartets. A strong bond exists with the community, as residents of Norfolk and the surrounding area host the Fellows throughout their summer experience. The Fellows perform on the Norfolk Fellows' Performance Series which is offered free to the public throughout the summer. The community of music lovers supports the young performers and becomes their most enthusiastic advocate. Over the years, while Norfolk has become a symbol of quality in chamber music performance and professi...</p></li></ul>
