VALLEY OF THE MOON MUSIC FESTIVAL

SALONNIÈRES
women OF POWER AND INFLUENCE
Chamber Music from Bach to Stravinsky

SONOMA, CALIFORNIA
July 13 - 28, 2019

This summer the Festival will celebrate our 5th season in Sonoma with a tribute to the extraordinary Salonnières of the 19th Century. These powerful women were the influencers of their day. They curated fantastic events in their homes by bringing together great performers, composers, and thinkers; helped shape the musical taste of 19th-century Europe; and launched the careers of outstanding composers whose music we still enjoy.

World-renowned violinist Rachel Barton Pine will join us on our second weekend of concerts in music by Franck and Chausson. Other highlights will include Stravinsky's classic Three Pieces for String Quartet, and other works by Mozart, Schumann, and Brahms.

We will also be presenting the second annual Blattner Lecture Series, featuring a new lineup of star lecturers who will explore the social and musical context of the 19th-century salon. More details about the concert programs and lectures, including lecture dates and times, will be coming soon.

Sip wine and enjoy the Sonoma vista while mingling with the artists on the patio after concerts. Each reception features a different local winery pouring their finest for you to taste. And feel free to picnic on the patio before concerts.

Enjoy a delightful dinner at Valley of the Moon Winery's Madrone Estate, just five minutes away, on July 14 or 21. Our musicians will welcome you there with a special brief performance.
