America's Music Festivals: Norfolk Chamber

Jun 18, 2012

Airs Monday, June 18 at 11:00 a.m.  The Norfolk Chamber Music Festival has a long history of bringing world-class music to the charming town of Norfolk, Connecticut. Ellen Battell, generous benefactor and wife of a man with family ties to Yale School of Music, left her estate to a private trust that ensures that it be used for Yale University’s summer music school. The festival has grown since its humble beginnings in the 1930s and now features 30 concerts in just nine weeks. True to its roots, the festival employs the best professional musicians and offers a chance for young musicians to learn and practice their craft.
