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.
The Triton Brass Quintet was founded in 2001 and includes five of Boston’s most prominent freelance musicians: Shelagh Abate (French horn); Stephen Banzaert and Andrew Sorg (trumpets); Wesley Hopper (trombone); and Jobey Wilson (tuba). Prize winners at the 2005 Lyon International Chamber Music Competition, the 2003 Fischoff International Chamber Music Competition, and semi-finalists at the Concert Artists Guild Competition, Triton is in its second year as artists-in-residence at The Boston Conservatory, where the group serves as both performers and instructors.
