Bridgehampton Chamber Music Festival Returns

This summer’s Bridgehampton Chamber Music Festival presents 11 concerts from July 24 to August 21. In its 39th season, Long Island’s longest-running classical music festival highlights interconnections in music through contemporary composers showcasing works inspired by their predecessors and combining their works with the works of Beethoven, Brahms, Dvořák, Mozart, and Schumann. 

Directed by flutist Marya Martin, the Bridgehampton Chamber Music Festival is known for presenting a broad range of music by some of the world’s best musicians in breathtaking East Coast settings. In addition to the summer festival, Bridgehampton Chamber Music offers mini-series in the autumn and spring. The festival’s roots are in the Bridgehampton Presbysterian Church and though it is still based here, it has expanded to include other event venues such as the Channing Sculpture Garden and Atlantic Golf Club in Bridgehampton and the Parrish Art Museum in Water Mill. 

The festival kicks off on July 24 with the return of the popular program “A Mozart Portrait with Alan Alda.” Succeeding programs include the annual free outdoor concert featuring the Sandbox Percussion ensemble, Caroline Shaw’s “Entr’acte” for Spring Quartet joined with works by Mozart and Shostakovich, Valerie Coleman’s “Tzigane” for Wind Quintet, Brahms’s Piano Quartet in G minor, and Lowell Liebermann’s Fantasy on a Fugue by J. S. Bach for Wind Quintet and Piano, to name a few. 

The Bridgehampton Chamber Music Festival’s annual benefit, featuring a concert, cocktails, and dinner, will be held at the Atlantic Golf Club, and the Wm. Brian Little Concert, an event with wine and hors d’oeuvres, will be held in the Channing Sculpture Garden. To purchase tickets for the programs, visit
