I’m so happy. I was invited to be Music Director again of the wonderful New Hampshire Music Festival! I was Music Director from 1992-2009, appointed Conductor Laureate in 2012 and am now MD again. The new administrative regime of John Thompson, Deb Kosits and Brad Dumont is terrific and they are warm, communicative people I like very much.
And the orchestra is still “my” orchestra made up of highly talented musicians, most of whom played with me for years. We were very close and now we will continue that strong musical and personal relationship.
As we move into the future, I predict a new Golden Age for the Festival, set in one of America’s most beautiful natural landscapes. Marsha, our 2 dogs and I are looking forward once again to our summers in the New Hampshire mountains!
