WEEKEND: More tunes to waft across Quilcene for Olympic Music Festival this Saturday, Sunday

Peninsula Daily News

QUILCENE — The Olympic Music Festival presents the third weekend of its 31st season with Charles Wetherbee and Korine Fujiwara on violin, Alan Iglitzin on viola, Walter Gray on cello and Steve Schermer on bass this Saturday and Sunday.

Ticket prices range from $18 to $33 for the concert at 7360 Center Road in Quilcene.

Chamber music concerts, which begin at 2 p.m. every Saturday and Sunday afternoon through Sept. 6-7, are held in an early 1900s dairy barn that has been converted into a performance hall.

The festival grounds, which are about 18 miles south of Port Townsend, open at 11 a.m. before the barn doors open at 1 p.m.

Patrons can choose to sit inside the barn or outside on the lawn, where the concert is broadcast.

The third weekend program offers the Beethoven String Quartet in B-flat major, Opus 18, No. 6; Bottesini’s Grand Duo Concertante for Violin, Double Bass and Piano; and the ever-popular “Trout” Quintet by Schubert.

Attire is pointedly casual for both patrons and musicians alike.

Ticket can be purchased by phone at 360-732-4800 or online at www.olympicmusicfestival.org, where more information awaits.
