Founded in 1995 by cellist Wilhelmina Smith to champion new music along with the standard classical chamber repertoire, Salt Bay Chamberfest cuts across a large swath of musical styles from the Renaissance to the present day and regularly featuring the music of living composers. The festival of four concerts over two weeks each August in Damariscotta, Maine, has a unifying theme such as the Spoken Word, Spirituality in Music, or, this year, 300 Years of Music. Musicians who are insightful, committed performers--the Brentano String Quartet, Jennifer Koh, violin, and Benjamin Hochman, piano--return each year together with new faces chosen for their special knowledge of the contemporary repertoire.
