A summer at Sewanee is transformative
t’s time to go out and play! When musicians say they play, we mostly think of playing notes, but for our SSMF students and artists, playing is also what we all did on the playground as youngsters — we explore, we build things (and tear them down!), we play old games and invent new ones. We play together. The creative energy and pure joy of expression that come together in Sewanee are contagious. For the next month, our Mountain will be our playground. Won’t you be on our team?! This summer we give a warm welcome to Octavio Más-Arocas, our new SSMF Resident Conductor, who will lead the Cumberland Orchestra and guest conduct the Sewanee Symphony. We introduce several new faculty artists and a wonderful group of guest conductors and artists. We celebrate the 100th birthday of Stravinsky’s ground breaking Rite of Spring, as we break new ground with works by living composers like Mason Bates and Thomas Sleeper, and cultivate ground for our students to create their own works, now and in the future. And always at the heart of what we do — and there is a lot of heart here — is the teaching and learning that are the true magic of Sewanee. Our stage will be graced with several outstanding SSMF alumni, back to show us where a Sewanee summer can lead.
Changing the nature of Music
The days are warm, the music is hot, and we are ready to have fun. Let’s play! — Katherine Lehman, Director
