Other musical selections will include works by Arvo Pärt, Villa-Lobos, Grieg, Bach Brandenburg Concerto, Dvorak, Mozart and more.

A program of Close Encounters With Music, the Catskill High Peaks Festival is a teaching and performance summer festival in the Northern Catskills that combines a residency program for 50 hand-picked emerging artists from around the world with evenings of classical music concerts for the public. Now in its 6th season, the Catskill High Peaks Festival has performed throughout the Hudson Valley-Berkshire region — at the Norman Rockwell Museum in Stockbridge, in the orchard at Olana, at historic Clermont, at the Doctorow PAC in Hunter and the Orpheum Theater in Tannersville, NY.
