This year’s Festival features the colorful, passionate and romantic music of Cuba, Russia and France, as performed by two international artists, George Lopez on Friday evening, and Irina Nuzova on Saturday evening.
The Festival concludes on Sunday afternoon with the Student Piano Recital, featuring the area’s best young pianists performing on OPA’s Steinway Concert Grand. Admission to this performance is free.
The Festival honors the memory of Elizabeth Dunaway Burnham, founder and first chairperson of Ogunquit Performing Arts. A pianist herself, Betty studied, performed and taught piano for most of her life. She also saw to it that OPA acquired its spectacular Steinway Concert Model C Grand Piano, which still remains OPA’ greatest treasure.
