The Bridgehampton Chamber Music Festival hosted their annual summer benefit, "An Evening To Celebrate," on Saturday, August 2, 2014 at the Atlantic Golf Club in Bridgehampton. Throughout the evening, guests enjoyed the best in classical music featuring musicians from five different decades.

This year's benefit celebrated the organization's 31st year of operation with music from Jean Barriѐre, Eric Ewazen and Robert Schumann. Musicians included Marya Martin on flute, Amy Schwartz Moretti on violin, Tien-Hsin Cindy Wu on violin, Beth Guterman Chu on viola, Edward Arron on cello, Carter Brey on cello and Joyce Yang on piano.

During the concert, many guests bowed their heads and closed their eyes - simply enjoying the beautiful sounds of the evening. After each set was completed the audience exploded in applause, giving a standing ovation after the finale, Vivace, was performed.

The Bridgehampton Chamber Music Festival Board Chairman Kenneth S. Davidson, was especially pleased with the event's turnout, and said he was particularly encouraged and impressed by the growing number of guests from younger audiences coming to enjoy the classical sounds. Prior to the concert, he thanked all the board members, the Atlantic Golf Club and, of course, the audience.

"Ticket sales represent less than 20 percent of our operating budget - you represent the rest," Davidson told guests.

The four week Bridgehampton Chamber Music Festival began on Wednesday, July 30 and will run through Sunday, August 24, 2014.
