Nestled in the New England countryside, the Summer Star Wildlife Sanctuary has been a reminder to us of why we began the musical journey. The incredible wilderness, visible through the glass canopy of the tree room, encourages our music making to reach a level of transcendence that is seldom felt in other concert halls and spaces. Moreover, the warm community that comes embraces every note with unbelievable attentiveness and generosity, feeding our ensemble’s connection as we work to create something greater than ourselves. It is in these connections where the medium of chamber music thrives, and it is truly exemplified in a place as special as the Summer Star Wildlife Sanctuary. As a group, we feel honored to share our part in it, and hope for more opportunities to come.

Most sincerely,

John Batchelder
