GRAFTON– Seth Knopp, artistic director of the Yellow Barn and Festival in Putney and critically acclaimed pianist, will be speaking at an “Open Ears” evening on Tuesday, June 18, at 7 pm. The event, presented by the Grafton Music Festival, includes discussion and demonstration of contemporary classical music in an intimate setting.

In addition to serving as artistic director for the Yellow Barn, Knopp also serves as artistic director of the Soundings: New Music at the Nasher, a concert series at the Nasher Sculpture Center in Dallas, Texas. He is a founding member of the Naumburg Award-winning Peabody Trio, Ensemble-in-Residence at the Peabody Institute, where he serves as a member of the piano and chamber music faculties. As a member of the Knopp-Melançon Duo, he was a winner of the USIA Artistic Ambassador Competition, which resulted in tours throughout Europe, the Far East, the Middle East, and Japan. Knopp has recorded on the CRI, Analekta, New World Records, and Artek labels.

Yellow Barn, an international center for chamber music, encourages discovery in the studio, classroom, and concert hall; explores the craft of musical interpretation; and illuminates our world through the unique experience of music.

The Grafton Inn’s Cricketers room, located on Townshend Road in Grafton (across from the Grafton Inn), will be home to this intimate event, which is free and open to the public. Space is very limited; please call (802) 843-2447 to reserve.
