The 2022 Caroga Arts Summer Music Festival was announced, featuring over 35 concerts with 20 guest artists and nearly 100 CLMF Resident Artists.
Kyle Barrett Price, Founder and Artistic Director of the Caroga Arts Collective, said he was excited about the festival.
“We’re excited to present the most extravagant summer season we’ve had in our eleven year history. We’re immensely grateful to Zash for sponsoring many of our Saturday concerts at Sherman’s, which feature national touring artists coming to the region for the first time. We have something for everyone – classical, blues, jazz, bluegrass, heavy metal, rock, funk, world music – you name it!
Guest artist debuts include music duo Michael and Kevin Bacon, known as The Bacon Brothers. Others include guitarist Cory Wong, vocalist Robyn Adele Anderson from Postmodern Jukebox, electric guitarist Brandon “Taz” Niederauer from Broadway’s School of Rock, and more.
Back by popular demand include saxophonist Eddie Barbash with the KASA Quartet and the Mike Block Trio. Also performing is the fast-rising American Modern Opera Company (AMOC). The AMOC’s co-artistic director and composer Matthew Aucoin will lead the Caroga Arts Ensemble in playing Mozart operas to modern operas.
During the 2022 Caroga Arts Music Festival, the festival will visit neighboring venues around the area. Also, new this summer is the CLMF Lesson & Ensembles Program, which invites community members of all ages to come to participate in general music workshops and individual or small group lessons for an instrument led by Caroga Arts artists.
Tickets for the 2022 Caroga Arts Music Festival will be available on May 20 here.
