Bowdoin International Music Festival Musicians visit Topsham Public Library

Bowdoin International Music Festival performers at the 2017 Community Concert held at Topsham Public Library.

Topsham Public Library will host students of the Bowdoin International Music Festival in a free concert on Saturday, July 7th at 2pm. The Bowdoin Festival’s Community Concert Series presents gifted classical musicians from around the world performing solo and chamber music in non-traditional venues. The performers are conservatory and graduate students who attend the festival’s summer program to hone their performing skills in preparation for a life in music.

The Bowdoin International Music Festival was founded in 1964 by Lewis Kaplan and the late Robert K. Beckwith of Bowdoin College. The mission of the festival is to prepare gifted young musicians from around the world for a life in music through study with world-class artists, and to present classical music in concerts performed to the highest artistic standards. Over its 54-year history, the Bowdoin International Music Festival has established itself as a vital force throughout the music world.

This Community Concert Series is a favorite at Topsham Public Library, and we hope to see you there! As always, the event is free and open to the public.
