Alongside the student orchestra performances, instrumental instructors perform concerts of chamber music throughout the festival’s run, and this is the first of the concerts from last summer in 2016. They perform two works by noted folk music enthusiasts Zoltán Kodály and Leoš Janáček, and conclude with Franz Schubert’s Trout Quintet, with the famous theme and variations movement based on his art song Die Forelle, or, The Trout.
