2015 Leelanau Summer Music Festival
Thursday July 2
Cancelled for reasons beyond our control
rescheduled for 2016
Praised by the press as a magician, virtuoso Sivan Magen transforms the harp into an instrument of unheard-of depth of colors and range of expression. Jerusalem born Magen has appeared as a soloist across the US, South America, Europe and Israel, in venues such as Carnegie Hall, Wigmore Hall, and the Sydney Opera House.
We are pleased to announce that we will still be able to offer a concert that evening
The Donald Sinta Quartet
Thursday July 2
The Donald Sinta Quartet, First Prize Winner of the Concert Artists Guild Competition, has earned praise from audiences and critics alike for its virtuosic performances, compelling recordings and distinctive repertoire. Hailed as a tight-knit ensemble exploding with power and virtuosity and an un-concealable ambition to connect with its newly found listeners (Boston Musical Intelligencer), the DSQ performs entirely from memory, which strengthens an already palpable connection with its audiences.
