Description

Serafin Summer Music returns bringing 22 acclaimed performing artists to Delaware from around the nation and the globe. The three-week schedule offers seven concerts open to the public, live and livestreamed from the Concert Hall at The Music School of Delaware in Wilmington. In addition, three “patrons-only” chats will be presented via zoom for ticket holders.

Each concert has a unique and inviting theme. The artists roster includes distinguished artists from Philadelphia, Chicago, New York, Oregon, Florida, Atlanta, and even Norway. Eclectic and varied programs include chamber works for strings, winds, piano, and voice.

The season opens with an all-Gershwin program ending with Rhapsody in Blue for solo piano. June 5 brings a whimsical performance, Sibling Rivalry! featuring three violin/piano sibling pairs sharing a musical frolic. Songs of Norway on June 6 puts the works of Edvard Grieg center stage, along with other Norwegian composers.

Serafin Summer Music programming provides listeners with tried-and-true favorites like the piano quintets of Dvorak and Schumann, as well as infrequently heard masterworks like Beethoven’s trio for two oboes and English Horn, Brahms’ songs for alto, viola, and piano, Clara Schumann’s Romance for oboe and piano, and “hidden gems” such as the splendid String Sextet by Danish Romantic nationalist composer, Niels Gade.

Serafin Summer Music performances are presented at the Concert Hall of The Music School of Delaware in Wilmington. Tickets for the live and livestreamed concerts are on sale now.

All ticket purchasers will have access to the patron-exclusive Serafins Backstage. Serafins Backstage is a meet-the-artists “chat,” offering a behind-the-scenes peek into the lives of festival artists each week of the festival. These are scheduled Thursdays June 3, 10, and 17.
