SummerFest comes to a close with a celebratory concert that will send you out into the night on a positive and wonderful note. In addition to Tchaikovsky’s lush and beautiful Serenade for Strings and Bruch’s Double Concerto for Clarinet, Viola, and String Orchestra, that will sweep you off your feet, Inon Barnatan has arranged Freddie Mercury and Queen’s biggest and most intriguing rock hit, “Bohemian Rhapsody,” for five cellos and piano. This will be the climax of a festival that audiences will be talking about for years to come.
