WESTON, Vermont – The Old Weston Parish Church is pleased to announce that Kinhaven’s ‘Young Artists Seminar‘ will return for what had been an annual pre-Covid performance at 2pm on Saturday 11th June 2022.

In 2015 Kinhaven launched the hugely successful ‘Young Artists Seminar’. its students, mostly in college and graduate school, work closely with dedicated and experienced teachers for a week and then perform an entire musical work in concert.

Old Parish Church is proud to have hosted one of the inaugural Young Artists concerts in 2015. Their concerts last just over an hour and have been extremely popular. They are usually played in trios or quartets. This year’s program will include compositions by Beethoven, Debussy, Arensky and Fauré. Those wishing to attend are encouraged to arrive early to ensure a seat.

Kinhaven was founded by visionaries David and Dorothy Dushkin and cultivated by pioneering music teachers Jerry and Nancy Bidlack. Since 2011, Deborah Buck and Tony Mazzocchi have been executive directors, and Adam Grabois is the director of the “Young Artist Seminar”.

This concert is a presentation of the OPC’s Hearts and Voices performance series, created in 2009 in memory of G. Frederick (Fritz) Zeller, lifelong educator, community leader and pillar of the Old Parish Church. All proceeds from the performances are donated to benefit deserving non-profit organizations serving the area.

The Old Parish Church is located on Route 100, on the left as you enter Weston from the south.
