"We are thrilled to make this next step in BCMF's history by expanding our season beyond the summer," Bridgehampton Chamber Music Festival (BCMF) Executive Director Michael Lawrence expressed. "Because these performances will take place during the school year, we are particularly happy to offer a $10 ticket for students, as well as offer even lower-priced tickets to local students through their schools - hoping to help along our next generation of music lovers."

This spring, Long Island's longest-running classical music festival is launching a new series. BCMF, which has treated the East End community to summer concerts since 1984, is hosting an expansion of their festival with two spring concerts, on Sunday, March 22nd and Sunday, April 26th.

"We are so excited to open our doors to music lovers from around the region for our new spring series," said Marya Martin, BCMF founder and artistic director. "Widening the scope of the festival while continuing to offer the community the finest repertoire interpreted by some of the best chamber musicians performing today is a dream come true."

The two concerts will showcase the festival's signature blend of renowned and rising stars, all of which are BCMF alumni. On Sunday, March 22nd, BCMF founder and artistic director, flutist Marya Martin will be accompanied by New York Philharmonic Principal Viola Cynthia Phelps and Principal Cello Carter Brey, Naumburg Competition winner pianist Gilles Vonsattel, and rising violinist Sean Lee for a concert featuring the music of Mozart and Mendelssohn. On Sunday, April 26th, the program will include the acclaimed Miró String Quartet, who will perform music by Haydn, Schubert, and Copland.

Both concerts will begin at 5 p.m. and take place at the Bridgehampton Presbyterian Church. Tickets are $40, $50, and $10 for students.

The Bridgehampton Presbyterian Church is located at 2429 Montauk Highway in Bridgehampton. For more information, visit www.bcmf.org.
