Midsummer's goes beyond the notes

If you are not careful, you might just get a Ph.D. in music this summer if you attend Midsummer’s Music performances. The performing arts organization is entering its third and fourth series of performances with the ensemble playing the works of Rachmaninoff and Tchaikovsky June 29th-July 2nd and the compositions of Okoye, Somervell, and Brahms July 6th-July 9th. The performances go beyond the notes the musicians play. Development Director Seth Hanford says the discussions in between pieces and opportunities like Wednesday’s open rehearsal at the Kress Pavilion in Egg Harbor take guests behind the music.

Hanford says the Midsummer’s Encore program, which allows you to see multiple performances within the same series, also gives a peek at how musicians perform night to night and from venue to venue. You can listen to our full interview with Hanford here.
