Last year, the Bridgehampton Chamber Music Festival (BCMF), Long Island's longest-running summer classical music festival, added to its East End repertoire with the debut of BCMF Spring, a mini concert series. The new component will offer even more to music aficionados in 2016, as BCMF has upped the performances to three spring shows.

"My heartfelt belief that East End audiences would embrace a series of spring concerts was confirmed last season," expressed BCMF founder and Artistic Director Marya Martin, "and their overwhelming support has allowed us to expand this year's offerings. I am touched by the wonderful reaction from the community."

The trio of concerts taking place at the Bridgehampton Presbyterian Church will kickoff on Saturday, February 27th with "Bach's World," centering on the life and times of Johann Sebastian Bach.

"Our audience recognizes the new spring series as an investment in the Hamptons community, and we have experienced an increase in support as a direct result," noted Executive Director Michael Lawrence. "We believe it also helped create momentum for the summer, as the 2015 festival drew record numbers, in audience and ticket revenue."

The series will continue with the Miró Quartet, who will perform Beethoven and Ginastera on Saturday, April 9th. The finale on Saturday, May 14th will feature music by Haydn, Mozart, and Schubert.

Tickets to the spring series begin at $40 and $10 for students.

The Bridgehampton Chamber Music Festival's 33rd summer season will take place in July and August 2016.

Bridgehampton Presbyterian Church is located at 2429 Montauk Highway in Bridgehampton. For more information, call 212-741-9403 or visit www.bcmf.org.
