GTMF’s 2021 season—to be held from July 2 through August 21—is the Festival’s 60th. Opening Week of the seven-week festival includes our popular Patriotic Pops Concert to be held outdoors. Under the leadership of Music Director Sir Donald Runnicles, the Festival kicks off with outdoor performances for larger audiences and then returns to socially distanced, indoor performances for six weeks at Walk Festival Hall. Concert programs feature guest artists cellist Sheku Kanneh-Mason, pianist Yefim Bronfman and violinist Leila Josefowicz. Other highlights include a world premiere by composer Melody Eötvös, a Jessie Montgomery co-commission with with soprano Julia Bullock, and a concert of opera highlights with world-renowned soloists. Stéphane Denève and Miguel Harth-Bedoya return as guest conductors and Gemma New makes her debut. The world-class talents of the Festival Orchestra musicians are featured in a weekly chamber music series at Walk Festival Hall. Select performances will be streamed online.
