A SENSE OF PLACE - Special Preview and Performance





Over the past decade, performances of Newburyport Chamber Music Festival commissioned works have been illuminating our history, our culture, ourselves.

In celebration of this monumental event, the evening prior to this concert the Custom House Maritime Museum will host a special preview and performance featuring Composer Kile Smith and Baritone Soloist Randall Scarlata, (listen to Mr. Scarlata here) with Newburyport Chamber Music Festival Artistic Director David Yang as moderator: Composer Kile Smith
