Festival Mentors Present Cello/Piano Recital at The Mainstay to benefit NMF

Two National Music Festival mentors will present a recital at 7:30 p.m. on January 15, 2016 at The Mainstay in Rock Hall. Tickets are $25 each, and all proceeds benefit the Festival?s Apprentice Scholarship Program.

Natasha Farny, NMF Cello Mentor, and Michael Gurt, NMF Piano Mentor, will perform sonatas by Ludwig von Beethoven and Benjamin Britten. Both mentors were wildly popular with Festival audiences in 2015; Gurt wowed a packed house as the soloist for Rachmaninoff's Rhapsody on a Theme of Paganini.

We encourage you to purchase your tickets in advance, although remaining tickets, if any, will be available at the door. Tickets can be purchased on the Festival's website, (see the bottom left side of the home page), or by mailing a check (made out to National Music Festival) to:

National Music Festival P.O. Box 284 Chestertown, MD 21620

All Festival apprentices - over 100 college and graduate level musicians every year - attend on full scholarship. The Festival depends on the revenue from benefit events like this one, as well as donations and ticket sales, to make this possible.

The National Music Festival is grateful to The Mainstay for hosting this event!

"This is a wonderful opportunity to enjoy delightful music, played by superb musicians in a great venue, and at a time of year when the Festival hasn't yet presented concerts," says Richard Rosenberg, NMF Artistic Director. "These two musicians represent the very finest caliber of musicians anywhere to be found in the world. They are donating their services because they care deeply about the NMF and love our community. Don't miss this concert!"
