How did the festival get started? Richard, who lived in Upstate New York, loved the peacefulness and beauty of the Finger Lakes. What better place, he thought, to bring his students for a tutorial in chamber music? In 2009, a Keuka Lake vineyard heard of what Richard was doing, and offered him their site atop a hill as a concert venue. The audiences loved it, and the Finger Lakes Chamber Music Festival was born.
