Info for GLMF 2014 will be posted by Sept 1, 2013.
The info below is from GLMF 2013 and will give you an idea of what is offered each year.
Great Lakes Music Festival, Jan. 25-26
Great Lakes Music Festival can be described as a musically enriching weekend of concentrated music making with instrumental, vocal, and piano enthusiasts grades 8-12. Experience the thrill of performing in a choir of 200 high school students while also participating in a focused track: band, orchestra, piano, men’s chorus/ handbells, or ladies’ chorus/chimes. You will not want to miss out on this amazing musical experience!
DATES: The upcoming annual Great Lakes Music Festival is on Friday and Saturday, January 25-26, 2013.
THEME: Our theme for this year is “Songs, Hymns, and Spiritual Songs.”
NEW for 2013: On Friday evening, frequent International Piano Duo Winners, Drs. Shapiro and Varshavski, will be performing a special piano duo concert for GLMF participants. Varshavski and Shapiro began performing as a piano duo in 1998. They combined to win the Murray Dranoff International Two Piano Competition in Miami, Fla., in 2005. They also finished first at competitions in Israel, Italy, Poland, and the Czech Republic. Both have studied at Jerusalem’s Rubin Academy for Music and Dance, the Longy School of Music in Boston and the University of Wisconsin-Madison.
