(May) This annual May festival is dedicated to providing North American symphony and chamber orchestras with an environment conducive to crafting and exhibiting a strong, singular artistic vision. The range of featured composers is broad, from the respective Renaissance and Baroque works of Giovanni Gabrieli and J.S. Bach to the contemporary music of Donal Fox, Christopher Theofanidis, and John Adams.
Orchestras selected to perform at the festival have included the Dallas Symphony, Orchestre Symphonique de Montreal, Orpheus Chamber Orchestra, the Edmonton Symphony, St. Paul Chamber Orchestra, and the Alabama Symphony. Not only does Spring for Music offer affordable ticket prices, but it also boasts an uncommon economic model in which each participating orchestra receives an equal share of the net receipts from ticket sales.
