Serafin Ensemble has postponed its classical music festival, Serafin Summer Music, to summer 2021.
The festival was created in 2019, in partnership with the University of Delaware Department of Music and the Music School of Delaware. In its first year, the festival presented eight concerts featuring 18 internationally acclaimed artists drawing large audiences of classical music aficionados. The post-concert meet-the-artists receptions with sumptuous bites and beverages themed to the concert programs became a signature of the festival right from the start.
“We are working to finalize the 2021 dates with the 19 artists scheduled to perform this year,” said Kate Ransom, artistic director. “We look forward to presenting an impressive concert schedule and bringing world-class live chamber music to Delaware again next summer. In the meantime, please join the Serafins this August for a one-of-a-kind live and virtual concert experience.”
The Serafins will present a Sibling Rivalry Surprise with a live concert at 5 p.m., Saturday, Aug. 22, at the Music School of Delaware in Wilmington. A virtual concert is set for 7 p.m., Tuesday, Aug. 25. Three dynamic brother-sister duos will team up for a rollicking virtuoso display of violin and piano finesse, fun and friendly feuding. This high-spirited performance features sibling artists Julie and David Coucheron, piano and violin; Helen and Michael Kim, violin and piano; and Kate and William Ransom, violin and piano.
Tickets are $20, including both the live and virtual performances. Online ticket sales will begin July 15 at www.musicschoolofdelaware.org.
The Serafins have rescheduled their June 25 concert at the Milton Theatre to 7 p.m., Thursday, Sept. 17.
