Chamber music will be played at the Latchis Theatre as part of the Pikes Falls chamber Music Festival on July 29 and Aug. 5.

BRATTLEBORO >> The Pikes Falls Chamber Music Festival returns to the Latchis Theatre this summer for two twilight hour free concerts on Friday afternoons.

Grammy-nominated musicians from the chamber music festival celebrating its fifth season in Jamaica, Vermont, will perform music by Bach, Schumann, Rachmaninoff, and world premieres by Joseph Hallman and Nathan Lincoln-Decusatis on consecutive Fridays, July 29 and Aug. 5, at 4 p.m. Admission is free, but donations are welcome. Compete concert repertoire is available on the festival's website.

The friendship between the Latchis and the Pikes Falls Chamber Music Festival began in a pinch last summer when a concert venue the festival was due to play in was damaged in a fire. Looking to find a venue for the concert on short notice, the festival contacted the Latchis, and the concert was so successful, the two organizations decided to do it again this year – this time on purpose.

Beer and wine will be for sale at the concerts, courtesy of Windham Wines, so please come by the Latchis and ease into the weekend with a concert of beautiful music played by top-notch musicians.
