It is with great pleasure that we announce the inaugural season of the Sag Harbor Song Festival.

 

The ingredients thus far promise a world class experience of music in a setting of intrinsic beauty and an intimacy of presentation. A four-concert festival spanning three evenings and culminating with a matinee performance, the performances will consist of a mixture of operatic repertory, musical theatre, songs and lieder covering a musical panorama and highlighting the talent of six rising stars of immense talent. These singers have appeared on the stages of the Metropolitan Opera, San Francisco Opera, the Aix-en-Provence Festival, the Bayerische Opera, Staatstheater Stuttgart, and in venues from the White House to St. Patrick's Cathedral.

 

We are very fortunate to have for the musical planning of the Program two colleagues whose combined efforts in the cause of music speak for themselves. Brad Woolbright, Artistic Director, and Robert Tweten, Musical Director, for the Festival, have a combined seven plus decades in the world of music.
