Greencastle Summer Music Festival tops 2018 fundraising goal
The Greencastle Summer Music Festival ended its 2018 season Aug. 15 with a performance featuring pianist May Phang, clarinetist Randy Salman,and cellist/festival founder Eric Edberg.
The evening concluded 12 weeks of concerts featuring “friends making music for friends” and was described by many as “the best season yet,” setting the bar high for next year’s 15th anniversary of the festival’s founding.
“I am so proud of how this season unfolded,” Festival Executive Director Chris Flegal said.
“We welcomed the return of so many friends to our festival, including the likes of Tad Robinson, Silkroad’s Global Musician Workshop, Joy Ike, Taka Kigawa, John Kamfonas, Nicole Brockmann, Tarn Travers, Claude Cymerman, Percussion Ensemble DePauw and Steve Snyder,” Flegal added. “We also made new friends, such as violist Jessica Meyer, members of Sybarite5, viola da gambist Brady Lanier and pianist Daniel Inamorato.
“It is wonderful to hear positive feedback about our festival’s season. We have a fantastic family of supporters who care deeply about what we do. I’m very excited for what is in store for next year.”
The festival once again surpassed its annual fundraising goal of $16,000 with a total of $16,344.51 by the end of the Aug. 15 performance.
The funds go directly to support the festival’s operating expenses and help sustain the festival for years to come.
