A longstanding fixture of An Appalachian Summer Festival returns this year with the not-so-typical musical styling of the Broyhill Chamber Ensemble.

“The festival was founded with chamber music, which quickly morphed into the Broyhill Chamber Ensemble,” marketing and public relations manager Megan Stage said. “Gil Morgenstern has been with the festival since the beginning, and the ensemble has become a staple to the festival and our audiences.”

Time to see these unique performances is quickly running out.

The next show is at 8 p.m. on Sunday, July 20 at the Rosen Concert Hall. Tickets range in price from $10 to $20. Featured music includes works by Bach, Beethoven and Dohnanyi.

“There are only two performances left of the top four performances this summer,” Stage said. “This Sunday, we will hear works by Bach, Beethoven, Fanny and Felix Mendelssohn and Ernst von Dohnanyi. On Tuesday, July 22, we will hear pieces by Mozart, Schubert, Copeland and Brahms.”

Unlike other performances of the festival, the chamber ensemble was designed to be savored in its entirety and not only briefly sampled.

The ensemble is an association of internationally acclaimed musicians which, in association with Nine Circles Chamber Theatre and its international Reflections series, presents an alternative to the conventional approach to chamber music programming, according to appsummer.org.

“The Broyhill Chamber Ensemble’s Reflection Series international performances are created so that when you see each of the four performances connected together, they reflect upon one another and give the audience an opportunity to hear the pieces in a different way,” Stage said. “This unique style of programming has kept a loyal and growing audience for 30 years.”
