Geneva Music Festival

The Geneva Music Festival presents the duo New Morse Code tonight on the Hobart and William Smith Colleges campus. New Morse Code is percussionist Michael Compitello and festival co-founder cellist Hannah Collins. They specialize in new works and often challenge and expand the sonic possibilities of their instruments. For this year’s festival, they’re bringing two new works, one of which they commissioned from composer Christopher Stark. “The Language of Landscapes”

The Geneva Music Festival is underway with performances happening at venues across the Finger Lakes. The festival opened last Thursday night with the Cavani String Quartet. The next morning, they were performing again.

 

The group gave two performances for the students at North Street School. It’s the school the festival’s artistic director Geoffrey Herd attended.
