The Hamptons Festival of Music (TH·FM) will return in 2023 for a full season of orchestral concerts featuring The New American Sinfonietta, a 41-member orchestra comprising top-level musicians and principal players with major North American orchestras led by TH·FM Artistic Director, Michael Palmer.

Following the success of its inaugural season in September 2022, TH·FM will continue to deliver on its core missions to enhance the quality of community cultural life through live performances of great classical orchestral masterworks in intimate spaces.

TH·FM’s 2023 mainstage concerts will return to LTV Studios on September 3, 8 and 10, featuring some of classical music’s most notable works, including Debussy’s “Afternoon of a Faun,” Stravinsky’s “Pulcinella Suite,” Ginastera’s “Variaciones Concertantes” and Brahms’ “Variations on a Theme of Haydn.” The festival season also includes two iconic works from the symphonic masterwork repertoire: Mozart’s Symphony #41 (“Jupiter”) and Beethoven’s trail-blazing Symphony #3 (“Eroica”). The 2023 festival season will also feature the world premiere of David Leisner’s “Wayfarer,” a concerto for guitar and orchestra written for the internationally renowned classical guitarist and returning guest artist Pepe Romero. Star soprano Maria Valdes also returns in a performance of Barber’s “Knoxville: Summer of 1915.”

“We will continue our mandate to provide the community and the players with a rich and rewarding experience of the great works of orchestral literature,” noted Maestro Michael Palmer, TH·FM Artistic Director. He continued to highlight his vision for the 2023 concert programs by saying, “Each of our three programs will feature at least one iconic orchestral masterwork to showcase further the caliber of artists that make up The New American Sinfonietta.”

“Patrons who attended part or all of our inaugural season can attest that a TH·FM concert experience is unique and memorable on so many levels,” said Michael Yip, TH·FM Executive Director. “We bring the audience into the music, up close and personal. It is an all-encompassing experience — you not only hear it, you see it, and you literally feel the music as it surrounds you. TH·FM’s 2023 festival season will continue to deliver on our special brand of classical music experience, and we look forward to bringing ‘Music and Art in Concert’ back to the Hamptons this September.”

The Hamptons Festival of Music (TH·FM) is the brainchild of Maestro Michael Palmer, who has established, maintained, and sustained the Bellingham Festival of Music, the premier orchestral music festival in the Pacific Northwest, for over 29 years. Maestro Palmer recognized the artistic gravitational pull of Long Island’s East End, which is deeply rooted in the works of many legendary artists. He set in motion plans to create a similar yet unique classical music and festival experience, specifically serving the local, year-round residents in East Hampton and the surrounding hamlets and villages.
