In 2022 the Arpeggio Music Festival is devoted to an exploration of the history and wide range of music written by American classical composers over the last 100 years. Featuring nine musical groups and soloists in nine concerts over three weekends in June, the goal is to showcase the diversity, versatility, range and creativity of American composers, who have historically been under-represented on American concert stages. The festival will present a broad cross section of composers—over 50 composers in total, half of whom are living and working today.
