The concert – an energetic and moving performance by Robert deMaine, Principal Cello of the L.A. Philharmonic, and pianist James Wilhelmsen – was simply outstanding in delivering a program of Debussy, Beethoven, Vaughan Williams, and Brahms. The audience was enthralled. Click here to see a video of Robert deMaine and James Wilhelmsen in concert at Millford, playing Ralph Vaughan Williams’ “Six Studies in English Folksong.”
Music at Millford has been quite a success and has more than tripled in size since our inaugural concert in 2011, which featured the piano duo of Marina Lomazov and Joseph Rackers. Tickets sold out a few weeks prior to the event this year, so we were saddened to have had to turn guests away. We hope all will be able to join us at next year — it was suggested we might have to add a music wing to Millford! Below is a selection of photographs — more can be found on our Facebook Page (click here).
We would like to express a heartfelt “thank you” to all of our Benefit Committee members for their efforts and support in making Music at Millford a success this year. A special acknowledgement to Christina Clark (at left), who meticulously guided and nurtured this program into the wonderful event it is today, is also in order. As one of our guests wrote us, “The weather, the architecture, the music, the friendship — everything was just perfect!” We were pleased to see many old friends and to welcome many new friends to Millford. We hope you all had as much fun as we did!
