Woodstock, NY, June 5, 2023 For the first time in many seasons, Maverick Concerts presents a Saturday evening classical guitar concert, featuring the Maverick debut of Mak Grgić [GER-gich]. Mr. Grgić’s performance aligns with Maverick’s season-spanning Latin Voices theme, “for the obvious reason,” says Maverick Music Director Alexander Platt, “that the Latin/Hispanic tradition is so central to that instrument’s repertory.” A Grammy-nominated recording artist known for his wide-ranging mastery, from the music of his native Balkans to avant-garde microtonal works, Mak Grgić is recognized as one the instrument’s most interesting and eclectic young stars. He has been touted as a “gifted young guitarist” by the New York Times, and “a guitarist to keep an eye on” by the Washington Post.

Entitled “Tales of the Hispanic World,” Mr. Grgic’s program for July 8 features a preponderance of Spanish and Latin music including masterworks by the late-Romantic Spanish composer Isaac Albéniz, Francisco Tárrega’s Capricho Arabe, and the stunning 1976 Guitar Sonata of the Argentinian genius, Alberto Ginastera. Mr. Grgić will also perform Sir William Walton’s Five Bagatelles, composed originally for Julian Bream, and three pieces by the Serbian guitarist and composer Miroslav Tadić.

The Miró Quartet is a favorite of Maverick audiences and one of the most respected and active string quartets in the world. Seemingly limitless in its repertoire and mastery, the Miró has not shied away from the form’s greatest challenges. In 2019, they recorded the complete quartets of Beethoven, the works that inspired all four members to play in the first place. They are adventurous curators of new chamber music as well, as evidenced by the inclusion of Caroline Shaw’s Microfictions on their upcoming Maverick program, alongside Mozart’s classic String Quartet no. 19 and a visionary late work of Antonin Dvořák.

Formed in 1995, the Miró Quartet has been awarded first prize at several competitions including the Banff International String Quartet Competition and Naumburg Chamber Music Competition. In 2005, they became the first ensemble ever to be awarded an Avery Fisher Career Grant. The Miró is quartet-in-residence at Chamber Music Northwest in Portland, OR and Orcas Island Chamber Music Festival in Washington State. The Miró Quartet took its name and its inspiration from the Spanish artist Joan Miró. Based in Austin, TX, the Miró has served as quartet-in-residence at the Butler School of Music at the University of Texas, Austin, since 2003.

This concert is in memory of David F. Segal, beloved Chair Emeritus of Maverick Concerts.

For 20 years, the Kingston-headquartered Wayfinder Experience has been perfecting its own sophisticated, enriching, and wildly successful version of live action role play gaming (LARPing). At their camps and school workshops, Wayfinder participants engage in a multi-dimensional and profoundly creative and collaborative form of storytelling that fuses improvisation, character development, technical theater, and deep immersion in narrative and myth. This Maverick program will introduce young audiences to Wayfinder’s unique and unforgettable mode of play. Wayfinder’s Maverick Family Saturdays presentation is free and open to the public, 11 am-noon.

Ara Dinkjian, Ismail Lumanovski and Tamer Pınarbaşı comprise the Secret Trio, an innovative and refreshing chamber music ensemble making their Maverick debut on Friday, July 7 as a part of the programming of the Woodstock Invitational Luthiers Showcase. Using novel percussive techniques and virtuoso-level skills, the Secret Trio create a new type of globally-attuned chamber music on instruments such as the oud, clarinet, and kanun. They perform original pieces and traditional melodies that fuse the microtonal modes and improvisation of the Middle East, dance beats of the Balkans, and elements of jazz, rock, classical and world music. The Secret Trio has performed in eight countries, in prestigious venues and festivals such as Lincoln Center, Symphony Space, GroundUp Festival, Metropolitan Museum of Art, and the Smithsonian Folklife Festival.


Maverick Concerts, the oldest continuous summer chamber music festival in America, is set amid the serene Catskill woodland just outside Woodstock, NY. Listed on the National Register of Historic Places, the uniquely charming rustic hall has superb acoustics and is the ideal venue for an intimate encounter with chamber music. Maverick presents concerts by internationally renowned classical, jazz, and contemporary music ensembles from July through early September. Maverick Concerts sustains the vision of its founder, Hervey White, who built the historic concert hall in 1916 and opened his land and hospitality to artists, musicians, and the community. Concerts are on Saturday evenings and Sunday afternoons. Maverick Family Saturdays, short interactive events designed for kids of all ages, are free and open to everyone on Saturday mornings.
