ARTISTIC & EXECUTIVE DIRECTOR’S STATEMENT
Rites of Spring Music Festival brings together excellent musicians, young and old, of different races, languages, religions and national origins.
The calling of our organization is to offer to the world, music and beauty that transcends difference and division. Rites of Spring Music Festival wants to connect with the whole of North Fork and East End of Long Island, a call that’s demanding, but also thrilling and deeply enriching. We pledge also to partner with local businesses and other organizations committed to promoting the East End, combining music, the natural environment, and historical heritage.
Believing that the music we love belongs to everyone, we are committed to deepen our ability to bring together people from all walks of life, to embody the belief that we are all close and that this territory is our huge, immensely beautiful energy reservoir.
Our intent is to be able to develop sustainable habits and models through music and the arts for our communities without forgetting the main privilege of living on the North Fork and East End of Long Island which is the opportunity to immerse yourself in nature and its beauties. All of our activities are based on an approach that focuses on presenting classical and contemporary music experiences, artistic practices and community-based strategies, with the aim of increasing socialization skills, mutual respect and care for the surrounding environment.
These commitments proceed directly from our core values, our mission and our shared vision of what a concert series based on these foundations looks like.
