Silver Center for the Arts, 114 Main Street, Plymouth, NHThe New Hampshire Music Festival is a six-week summer music festival that honors the tradition of classical music while exploring new artistic paths. This is our 62nd year of bringing classical music to New Hampshire! For nearly 20 years, the Festival has been in residence at Plymouth State University, and is now a fixture at the Hanaway Theatre in the Silver Center for the Arts.
The NHMF strives to connect the Lakes Region with an engaging, immersive festival experience by presenting world-class performances, creating strong collaborations with community partners, and offering educational programs to students of all ages.
The festival was founded in 1952 as a small chamber orchestra performing on Melody Island in Lake Winnipesaukee and has grown to be a highly-valued community asset. Every summer during July and August, musicians from around the country come to Plymouth to perform well-known classics and contemporary works.
Maestro Donato Cabrera, who had his first season at the helm of the festival in Summer 2013, enjoys an international career as a music director and conductor. Last year, he expanded the festival?s orchestral and chamber concerts, and reestablished the family concert series. In addition to his role at NHMF, he is the music director of the California Symphony and Green Bay Symphony Orchestra, and is resident conductor of the San Francisco Symphony (SFS) and the Wattis Foundation Music Director of the San Francisco Symphony Youth Orchestra (SFSYO).
