JOANN WHANG IS one of the faculty members at Point CounterPoint who will perform in their annual concert at the Town Hall Theater in Middlebury on Friday, July 12, at 7:30 p.m. Admission is free. Donations appreciated.

MIDDLEBURY — The professional musicians who teach at Point CounterPoint Chamber Music Camp on Lake Dunmore hail from prestigious music institutions and from many parts of the world. PCP Faculty changes every two weeks with each new session of campers. 
The performance on Friday, July 12, at Town Hall Theater in Middlebury will feature Ari Streisfeld, Anne Lanzilotti, David Kaplan, Joann Whang, Jessica Tong, Romina Monsanto and Isabel Ong. This year’s musical program includes Three Madrigals from Book VI by Carlo Gesualdo, arr. Ari Streisfeld, Mendelssohn’s Piano Trio No. 2 in C Minor Op. 66 , Light and Matter by Kaija Saariaho, and Brahms’ String Sextet No. 1 in Bb Major Op. 18. 
These faculty concerts give PCP campers a chance to experience the musical excellence and the dedication of their teachers, which proves to be an inspiration.
Admission to the concert is free, and goodwill donations to support Point CounterPoint are encouraged. The house opens at 7 p.m. for the 7:30 p.m. concert.

DID YOU KNOW?
Middlebury’s own Emory and Diana Fanning used to own and direct Point Counterpoint. Since their first year in 1979, the Fannings were able to attract outstanding musicians and performers to teach at the camp.  To give these talented musicians some performance opportunities, the Fannings founded the Point CounterPoint Faculty Concert Series which (under their 10-year leadership) performed in numerous venues across Vermont, sharing a tradition of outstanding musical achievement. For more information about the camp, visit pointcp.com.
