The Fifth Music at Millford will be held on Sunday, September 18, 2016. Mark your calendars!

We are delighted to announce that Robert deMaine, Principal Cello of the Los Angeles Philharmonic, will be both a performer and the Artistic Director of this year’s program! He brings his talents as a virtuoso to the “stage” as well as to the planning of a unique concert program that will highlight the setting of experiencing music at Millford. 

Robert will return to Millford with two fellow musicians from the LA Philharmonic to perform as a string trio – featuring Nathan Cole, First Associate Concertmaster, and Ben Ullery, Assistant Principal Viola. Do not miss this opportunity to experience world-class music at one of the finest examples of Greek Revival architecture in the country.
