MAVERICK CONCERTS 2017 SCHEDULE


 
From the Music Director,
It is my honor and pleasure to present the 2017 season of Maverick Concerts and our stunningly successful adventure as the oldest continuous summer chamber music festival in America. It is time for us to once again look forward in our customary fashion, blending the beloved works of the old masters with the finest of the new and the unfamiliar. I invite you to revel in the magic of our historic Music Chapel in the Woods, and celebrate our world-class performers, who will be brilliantly performing at their very best for you. Ever grateful to the uniquely Woodstock spirit that gave birth to the Maverick over a century ago, I welcome you to Maverick Concerts’ 102nd Festival! 

Alexander Platt, Music Director
