Stellar Line-Up of Guest Artists in Residence for Inaugural FestivalJun 19, 2009
Three of the New York Philharmonic's most celebrated principal players, an internationally acclaimed soprano, and one of America’s leading voice teachers highlight the group of artists who will serve as mentors and guest performers during the inaugural Castleton Festival.
Maestro Maazel has invited Glenn Dicterow, the Philharmonic concertmaster; Robert Langevin, the principal flute and Phil Myers, the principal horn, to assume both performing and teaching roles during a week-long residency period for each. For the Festival’s vocalists, soprano Nancy Gustafson, twice a soloist with the New York Philharmonic this month, and Marlena Malas, who holds faculty positions at the Juilliard School, the Curtis Institute and the Manhattan School of Music, and also chairs the vocal program at the Chautauqua Institution, will provide coaching and master classes.
Mr. Dicterow will coach the string players in the Festival Orchestra and join in the first symphonic concert of the Festival on July 11th as soloist in the Bruch Violin Concerto No. 1. Mr. Myers and Mr. Langevin will each play recital programs on July 9 and July 15 (respectively) at The Theatre in Little Washington, extending the Festival’s offerings outside of Castleton. All three artists will also give master classes to Festival instrumentalists.
