Gold Ballroom at the Hotel du Pont IN Wilmington

One of the Delaware Symphony Orchestra’s greatest strengths is its roster of talented musicians that can be called upon to organize performances in a wide range of complexity and moods in a single evening.

The result is often a delightfully strange assemblage of pieces and the orchestra’s final chamber series concert of the season — “David Amado and Friends” — in The Gold Ballroom of the Hotel du Pont was one of the most curious, featuring Schubert’s richly lyrical Piano Trio No. 1 in B-flat Major, Op. 99, Shostakovich’s polystylistic Piano Trio in E minor, Op. 67 and Ysaye’s virtuosic Sonata No. 4 for Solo Violin...

The Delaware Chamber Music Festival (DCMF) turned to Scandinavia for the penultimate concert of its 31st season, programming works by some famous and not-so-famous Nordic composers.

The concert opened with a performance of Handel/Halvorsen’s Passacaglia for violin and cello. Halvorsen (1864-1935) was a celebrated violinist, conductor and composer best remembered today for this brilliant extrapolation of Handel’s passacaglia for an intrepid duo of two masterful musicians, in this case Hirono Oka, violin and Burchard Tang, viola. DCMF Music Director and Violinist Barbara Govatos noted that the piece is primarily used for educational purposes, so it was a real treat to hear it performed in concert...

About a week ago the dust settled on the 2016 Firefly Music Festival. As 90,000-plus began the mass exodus from the state capital, Dover residents breathed a sigh of relief as they were returned their strip malls and gas stations that line Route 13 as it passes by Dover International Speedway. The grounds surrounding the Monster Mile and The Woodlands were left a trash-strewn mess – but we were happy to see the efforts of Code Purple this year improving the cleanup post-festival, collecting forgotten items for the homeless of Delaware. Despite the dreadful aesthetics,  such a mess can be seen as a sign of a successful music festival and that’s exactly what we had on our hands this year...

The daytime slots at the Firefly Music Festival are probably the most exciting, and our apprehension was high going in every single day. The opportunity to see new bands from around the country that otherwise may go unnoticed or unheard of is priceless to people like us who love to hear new music. So when the rain had finally cleared from Thursday night and the drainage issues that plagued last year’s festival looked solved by some ingenious engineers, us here at IN Wilmington headed out Friday morning to hit up the first act, a special one to us because of their connection to the local music scene...

IN Wilmington Goes to Firefly Music Festival 2016

It's no secret that the festival - in its fifth year at the Woodlands at Dover International Speedway - has raised the bar immensely as far as big time musical acts coming to play Delaware are concerned. Since it’s inception, the festival has brought top-line talent to the First State; Paul McCartney, The Killers, Foo Fighters, Red Hot Chil Peppers - all multi-platinum Grammy winners - have marked their Firefly performance as their Delaware inauguration.https://www.instagram.com/inwilmingtonde/
