ROCKPORT MUSIC

Rockport Music is the presenter of the Rockport Music Chamber Festival, which is widely recognized as one of the most distinguished chamber music festivals in the United States. Under the artistic leadership of renowned pianist David Deveau, concerts feature established performers of international stature (Peter Serkin, Dubrovka Tomsic, Midori), emerging young talent (Jupiter String Quartet, Gilles Vonsattel, Biava String Quartet), and commissions by many of today’s leading composers. In addition to the Festival, Rockport Music offers year-round presentations of classical, jazz, folk, and other genres of music.

Building on its artistic successes, Rockport Music is currently experiencing a period of transformation and institutional growth. In June 2010, Rockport Music will open the doors of its permanent home, the Shalin Liu Performance Center, a state-of-the-art oceanfront concert hall now under construction on Main Street in the historic village of Rockport, Massachusetts. The new performance center will allow Rockport Music to extend its signature chamber music festival to six weeks, offer complementary events such as lectures and free programs, expand its non-classical musical offerings, and focus on educational outreach programs for children and adults.

ARTIST PROFILES

RACHAEL PRICE

Twenty-three-year-old jazz vocalist Rachael Price has amassed an impressive resume for her age. Born in Australia and raised in Nashville, Tennessee, Price grew up listening to her father’s recordings of the great jazz singers of the 20th century. In 2003, she recorded her first album, ‘Dedicated to You,’ a collection of standards in honor of Ella Fitzgerald, Doris Day, Nat King Cole, and others. That same year, she was selected as a vocalist by the Grammy Foundation for their National High School Jazz Choir, and went on to become the youngest semi-finalist in the Montreux International Jazz Vocal Competition in Europe. Ms. Price completed a degree in Jazz Studies at New England Conservatory in 2008 while also maintaining an active performing and touring schedule. Members of Price’s trio are Erik Prevert (bass), Dave Brophy (drums), and Warren Wolf (piano).
