Bowdoin Music Festival Opens With ‘Striking Program of Russian Music’ (Portland Press Herald)

The Ying Quartet

The Bowdoin International Music Festival got underway this week with a concert on Monday 26 June, 2017, with a “striking program of Russian music” performed by the Ying Quartert, wrote Allan Kozinn in the Portland Press Herald.

Phillip and David Ying took over the running of the festival two years ago from its founder Lewis Kaplan, who had been at the helm for fifty years. The Yings, said Kozinn, are now “beginning to find directions that will help them put their own stamp on the festival.”

The festival runs until August 4th, during which time anyone walking across campus during the daytime will likely be able to hear the sounds of musicians practicing inside college dorm rooms.
