I am an American violinist who currently lives and works in London, UK. It has been a lifelong dream of mine to create a chamber music festival - a retreat for me and my musician friends and colleagues, a series of concerts to bring to local audiences, and an occasion to celebrate the joys of life and music.
I have finally found the ideal set of conditions to make my dream come true. The inaugural Glenn Douglas Winter Chamber Music Festival, named after my late father, the most avid music-lover I ever knew, will take place in South Florida during the holiday season 2018-2019. My colleagues and I will bring classical music out of the concert hall and perform a series of intimate concerts in unique local venues: the Ritz Carlton Hotel Bal Harbour and the Art Gallery at the Four Seasons Residences Surfside.
I am excited to launch my Festival in an area of the world that is very special to me: my grandparents resided just blocks from the two concert venues. I have spent and continue to spend many weeks a year in this area and look upon it as a second home. I can’t wait to give back to these communities in the form of three wonderful concerts.
Each concert has a unique theme to which every musical selection on the program relates, yet at the same time, each program is full of diverse and varied music. The composers whose music we will feature range from Mozart and Beethoven to Schulhoff and Britten and everything in between! Head over to the “Concerts & Tickets” page for more details and to reserve your seats.
Come along - hear some beautiful music performed to the highest international level, see a stunning space transformed into a concert hall for the day, enjoy mingling with the artists following the performance, and maybe even be tempted to take a stroll on the beach before or after the concert…
Enrich your holiday season with the gift of music.
I very much hope to see you there!
