2020 Artist Exchanges

Our Artists in Residence are the heart of our festival. Many of you have heard them perform. These 45-minute talks give audience members a chance to gain insight into the life and mind of an Artist and to give each of their performances more personal context. Artist Exchanges will be presented virtually this summer.

In lieu of a ticket fee, we welcome donations. YouTube links to each Artist Exchange are below. You may also visit our YouTube channel.

Thursday, July 23 at 7pm Eastern Daylight Time | Kara Dugan
“Versatility in Music”


In this Artist Exchange, Kara Dugan will explore the power of versatility in the modern age of music and how pushing your musical boundaries can lead to unexpected discovery and growth in your craft.


Thursday, July 30 at 7pm Eastern Daylight Time | Michael Dahlberg
“Seeking Relevance”


What ways can classically trained musicians and the music we value be a vehicle for social change? In this Artist Exchange, cellist and educator Mike Dahlberg will talk about his journey over a decade to find answers to this question, sharing anecdotes and lessons learned about what it looks like to authentically and meaningfully engage diverse communities.

*Artist Exchanges are sponsored by Daniel Bross and Robert Cundall.
