The Kennedy Center has a long and popular tradition of staging the finest chamber music from America's varied festivals. The critically acclaimed Santa Fe Chamber Music Festival takes its place as "the best and brightest," with "energetic and powerful performances" (Los Angeles Times). Artistic director and pianist Mark Neikrug joined the festival in 1998, turning its focus back to small, high caliber, chamber groups. For this visit to the Kennedy Center, Neikrug has chosen a fascinating program about nature and art, merging works that spans the globe, including a beautiful Native American piece. The evening begins with Native American Gloria Emerson, who will speak on the relationship between nature and art, and the special traditions of her own Navaho heritage.
