Waynflete hosts first annual Invitational Chamber Music Festival

Waynflete hosted the school’s first annual Invitational Chamber Music Festival on February 10. Over 30 participants representing eight schools and studios gathered in the Franklin Theater for workshops and a public concert.

“The goal is to provide an annual opportunity for small ensembles—ranging from a trio to nine or ten players—to come together, learn, share their work, meet peers, and gain performing experience,” said Andy Happel, director of Strings and Chamber Music at Waynflete. “As our department grows, we want to bring Maine’s aspiring young musicians to our beautiful facility and give them a new and different opportunity to share their work.”
