The Jacob K. Javits Convention Center, 655 W 34th St, New York, NY
"The Ballad, influenced by the death of the composer's mother, was originally for cello and cello ensemble prior to this arrangement. Poignantly expressive, the piece casts a shadow far longer than its nine-minute duration. Caroline Stinson is a superb soloist, her tone full, and capable of bringing off the full emotional weight of the climax... Fans of the music of Aaron Jay Kernis need not hesitate."

More than a weekend, this festival that Andy and I took over 3 years ago now stretches over three weekends and has several week-day events - but what could be better than for a festival to outgrow a name?! It is a joyous time in our lives every summer now, and the grand fulfillment of an entire year's work and planning.
Caroline is very excited to report the much anticipated release of On Distant Shores, composer Aaron Jay Kernis' latest release on Phoenix USA. The release features the ballet score On Distant Shore written by Kernis for Rioult Dance New York. The album features additional chanber works including the Trio in Red.
