On Saturday, July 20, Music@Menlo welcomes the community to take part in a series of festival events at Menlo School. This daylong event affords audiences the opportunity to become a part of the festival’s daily music-making activities, in addition to meeting fellow music lovers from the festival community. The day kicks off with a Q & A Coffee at 8:30 a.m. with Artistic Directors David Finckel and Wu Han. Open rehearsals—on this day only—and open coachings allow audiences to observe festival artists and Chamber Music Institute students in the process of preparing great chamber music repertoire for performance. Other activities include the season’s first Café Conversation, with the season’s Visual Artist, Sebastian Spreng, at 11:45 a.m. in Martin Family Hall and an optional buffet lunch with festival artists and Institute musicians at 1:00 p.m. ($15). The evening features a Prelude Performance (5:30 p.m., Martin Family Hall, free tickets required) and Carte Blanche Concert I: Percussion Complexities at the Center for Performing Arts at Menlo-Atherton (8:00 p.m., tickets required, $50/$40;).
