January 2022

Happy New Year! As we start 2022, the Festival looks forward to providing a full in-person Festival this summer. Festival dates are July 20-31.

Executive director Pam Hunter left KCMF in September 2021. After a three-month search for her replacement, the Board asked Betsy Marcotte if she would be willing to step down as board president and assume the position of executive director. We are happy to report she said “yes” and started work on January 3. Betsy brings four years of experience on the Board and has tremendous respect for Natalie and the organization. The Board elected Deborah Grossman-Garber as its new president.

URI’s Fine Arts Center will be closed for the next two summers for long-awaited renovations. While the Center is closed, the Festival will take place in Edwards Hall, which is centrally located on the URI campus. We will provide more details about parking, access and seating as the season gets closer, but Edwards actually seats more people than the concert hall, so no one should be deprived of a seat for this summer’s concerts.

Our Spring Concert, scheduled for Sunday, May 29 at 4:00, will take place at McVinney Auditorium in Providence.

Complete information on this season’s concert programs and artists will be available on March 1, 2022 and tickets for all concerts will go on sale May 1, 2022
