Bidding opens on July 17 and closes at the start of the Best of the Fest concert on August 1, In Carmel, however, where things are frequently done backwards or askew, we have two impresarios who were women — Dene Denny and Hazel Watrous.

It is to them that Carmel owes much of its early development in music, theater and architecture. Dene loved music from the very first. She was sent to San Francisco and later to New York to study the piano. She then turned back to music and opened a studio in San Francisco where she taught piano. Her studio was the site of many intimate musical recitals. Denny specialized in avant garde music and gave the first concert in California of entirely modern works.

Hazel Watrous was born in Visalia, the daughter of a famous landscape photographer. Studying the composition of a picture was part of the family routine. She was also a student of the painter Gottardo Piazzoni. She worked in and about the theater in Los Angeles and San Francisco. Watrous was a painter, stage and costume designer and interior decorator. They have since become Festival patrons. Denny and Watrous met at a party in the studio of a mutual friend in To further their education, they decided to go to New York by way of Carmel.

Here they found a city almost entirely dedicated to the arts. One of the problems that faced people moving to Carmel was finding a way of making money. Hazel solved this by designing houses, some 36 of them. They were innovative in design — she drew on the Arts and Crafts movement with exposed beams and redwood on the interior and board and batten exteriors. Large picture windows, painted shingles and pastel colors for the exterior walls were also featured.

They were extremely popular and introduced a new style for Carmel architecture. Their house with its two-story picture window, flanked by two grand pianos and warmed by a fireplace, became the gathering place for informal recitals, lectures and other gatherings.

Here Aaron Copeland performed, Henry Cowell demonstrated his entirely radical tone clusters, and Richard 18 Carmel Bach Festival Neutra lectured on modern building design. In they founded the Carmel Music Society as a result of these recitals. In the official partnership, Denny-Watrous Management, was launched. This group became the Michael Penha Piano Quartet.

Penha was a dynamic leader and fine musician and under his direction a program of concertos by members of the Quartet was accompanied by a string orchestra, comprising of Monterey Peninsula musicians.

In Ernst Bacon was appointed conductor of the Symphony. It was from that group that the crowning achievement of the Denny-Watrous collaboration evolved — the Carmel Bach Festival. The season lasted for three days with the final concert held at the Carmel Mission Basilica. The season of lasted one week. Denny and Watrous watched as the Carmel Bach Festival grew into a renowned yearly event with patrons sojourning from all over to attend surviving the dark days of the Depression, World War II and the growth of the Monterey Peninsula.

Hazel died in In , at the 22nd Bach Festival, Dene Denny, appearing very ill, received a resounding ovation from the audience and musicians and praise for her accomplishments, inspirations and leadership in music. She died later that year. Considering the extremely innovative ways that Dene Denny and Hazel Watrous had of approaching new ideas, one believes that they would be pleased with Festival today.

Saturday, July 25th Time: Park on the street or at Sunset Center. In , the first Episcopal services in Carmel were held at the Pine Inn.

The first church, built in , now serves as City Hall for Carmel-by-the-Sea. In construction began on the present church property, was delayed during WWII, and resumed under the direction of Rector Alfred Seccombe in Park in small lot off Lausen Road or in larger lot just below on Rio Road. No handicapped access to restrooms. The gates to the Mission Courtyard will open at 7: Free parking in the lot and on the road beside the school.

Church in the Forest opened its doors as a community chapel on September 13, This chapel, designed by John Lyon Reid, is noted for it soaring ceilings, giant wooden pillars and lattice covered windows. A splendid glass wall behind the altar reveals a living tapestry of birds, trees and sky.

Of particular importance is the Greg Harrold pipe organ built and installed in This baroque instrument is perfectly sited high in the rear balcony. The traditional wine-glass shaped cabinet is made of mahogany. Pipe work is of wood and tin alloys; the exposed front metal pipes are gilded, polished and embossed. The wonderful acoustics of Erdman Chapel enhance the tonality of this exceptional instrument.

To enter the basilica at the Carmel Mission is to step back in time more than two centuries. The present stone church was planned by Junipero Serra during his administration as Father-Presidente of the California Mission chain However many factors contributed to its actual erection being delayed until years after his death. Serra wished to build a permanent stone house of worship in the style of those in Mexico and Spain, resembling those he erected in the province of Queretaro in Mexico.

This type of building required skilled masons to cut and dress the stones and no professionals were to be had in the province of California. Park in small lot at the Church or on the street 90 minute parking.

Approval was granted to build on the corner of Junipero and Ocean Avenue, and the sanctuary was dedicated in Park on the street or at Sunset Center lots. Note time limitations for street parking. The original church building had become inadequate in space and appearance by , and with the weakening of the structure itself, a new building was planned. The change was radical.

Architecturally, it belongs to no period — it belongs to Carmel. Stanton, the architect, designed a building with the growing character of the area in mind. Carmel-by-the-Sea had many artists and artisans among its residents, and its feeling of exclusiveness was beginning to be felt.

With this in mind, Mr. It is one of the largest pipe organs currently on the Monterey Peninsula. Parking lot is located on the corner of Webster and Figueroa, across the street from the Cathedral. Additional parking is available in the school courtyard adjacent to the parish offices.

In , it was the finest assembly hall of any school in the area with seating for over For nearly forty years, the Sunset Center was home to symphonies, chamber musicians, singers, actors, and dancers.

To address the problem of a facility that was ill-equipped for the 21st century, a combined public and private partnership was formed with the goal of modernizing and renovating the Sunset Center. The construction project began in September and in July , less than two years later, the Sunset Center reopened with the Carmel Bach Festival.

Since the renovation, Sunset Center continues to host more than 50 classical music performances each year and welcomes artists from around the world to its stage.

Within all this activity, the heart of the festival is the music. And the music comes from one place — the musicians. Each year about 50 households sponsor a musician. Musician Sponsorships enable the Festival to attract the finest players and singers in the world. Sponsorships also create a stronger relationship between festival patrons and the musicians.

Musicians feel welassist both the Festival and the musicians. We know that while musicians make the sound, the donors provide the means — and together they make the Festival. New this year to the Musician Sponsorship program is the Youth Chorus Sponsorship, which covers the cost of paying Chorale members to train talented high school students who sing in the Festival Youth Chorus. A number of individual sponsors are committed to sustaining this program that serves local youth — especially in these challenging times.

Richard Walters; Scott Dettra — Dr.

Kevin, my predecessor, took over the Scout House and turned it into a harpsichord workshop complete with roaring fireplace and late night recitals. With his increasing order book for elaborate harpsichords, however, Kevin desperately needed to take a summer off and spend the solid five weeks of the Bach Festival season catching up in his own workshop.

I remember the lengthy international phone calls as Kevin shared with me the many problems of his finding a suitable replacement for his year off. When it became obvious that no suitable person could be found in the States, Kevin was intent on persuading me to fill in for him, especially as I was already planning to be on the East Coast that summer for the Boston Early Music Festival.

I had two trepidations. I was aware of the extensive use of small continuo organs which would require me to learn their individual internal architecture and which would be rather hard on my ears for tuning. My first year with the Festival was delightful.

It was a pleasure to actually be able to take root so long in one place, when so many of my projects entails flying into a city for a single concert, or performing harpsichord maintenance work for perhaps a few days or a week. Kevin enjoyed his summer off so much, and I was flattered to be asked to return again the following year.

Kevin is still involved procuring the early keyboard instruments which have become the heart of the Festival program. We choose the keyboards according to the repertoire and collect and transport them to Carmel together. In , there were four harpsichords, three fortepianos and two organs under my care.

I rarely divide all the notes of the scale absolutely equally as is expected on the piano, because the bright harmonic structure of the harpsichords in particular makes them sound harsh when tuned in Equal Temperament. In that system, every key is actually out of tune, and there is far more interest and excitement to be found in earlier music by optimizing the fixed keyboard tuning to suit the music. You be the judge. In the season, I tuned a record two hundred and twenty-two times! Patrons are more likely to see me speeding on my bike from one venue to the next to tune, rather than seated at a concert or in the noise of a late-night party.

I had very good grades in high school, I was good in science and math, and they imagined that as a doctor or a research chemist or an engineer, I might be more appreciated than I would be as a musician. Let me talk a little bit about music, and how it works. The first people to understand how music really works were the ancient Greeks. And this is going to fascinate you; the Greeks said that music and astronomy were two sides of the same coin.

Astronomy was seen as the study of relationships between observable, permanent, external objects, and music was seen as the study of relationships between invisible, internal, hidden objects. Music has a way of finding the big, invisible moving pieces inside our hearts and souls and helping us figure out the position of things inside us. Let me give you some examples of how this works. One of the most profound musical compositions of all time is the Quartet for the End of Time written by French composer Olivier Messiaen in Messiaen was 31 years old when France entered the war against Nazi Germany.

He was captured by the Germans in June of , sent across Germany in a cattle car and imprisoned in a concentration camp. He was fortunate to find a sympathetic prison guard who gave him paper and a place to compose. There were three other musicians in the camp, a cellist, a violinist, and a clarinetist, and Messiaen wrote his quartet with these specific players in mind.

It was performed in January for four thousand prisoners and guards in the prison camp. Today it is one of the most famous masterworks in the repertoire. There was barely enough energy on a good day to find food and water, to avoid a beating, to stay warm, to escape torture — why would anyone bother with music? Well, in a place where people are only focused on survival, on the bare necessities, the obvious conclusion is that art must be, somehow, essential for life.

The camps were without money, without hope, without commerce, without recreation, without basic respect, but they were not without art. Art is part of survival; art is part of the human spirit, an unquenchable expression of who we are. That morning I reached a new understanding of my art and its relationship to the world. I sat down at the piano that morning at I lifted the cover on the keyboard, and opened my music, and put my hands on the keys and took my hands off the keys.

And I sat there and thought, does this even matter? Playing the piano right now, given what happened in this city yesterday, seems silly, absurd, irreverent, pointless. Why am I here? What place has a musician in this moment in time? Who needs a piano player right now? I was completely lost. And then I, along with the rest of New York, went through the journey of getting through that week. I did not play the piano that day, and in fact I contemplated briefly whether I would ever want to play the piano again.

And then I observed how we got through the day. The first organized activity that I saw in New York, that same day, was singing. People sang around fire houses, The first organized activity people sang We Shall Overcome.

Lots of people sang America the Beautiful. The that I saw in New York, first organized public event that I remember was the Brahms Requiem, later that that same day, was singing.

The first organized public expression of grief, our first communal response to that historic event, was a concert.

That was the beginning of a sense that life might go on. The US Military secured the airspace, but recovery was led by the arts, and by music in particular, that very night. Music is a basic need of human survival. There might have been only a little music, there might have been some really bad music, but I bet you there was some music.

What is it about the music swelling up at just the right moment in ET so that all the softies in the audience start crying at exactly the same moment? Music is the understanding of the relationship between invisible internal objects. I must tell you I have played a little less than a thousand concerts in my life so far. I have played in places that I thought were important.

I like playing in Carnegie Hall; I enjoyed playing in Paris; it made me very happy to please the critics in St. I have played for people I thought were important; music critics of major newspapers, foreign heads of state. The most important concert of my entire life took place in a nursing home in Fargo, ND, about four years ago.

I was playing with a very dear friend of mine who is a violinist. Now we often talk to our audiences about the pieces we are going to play rather than providing them with written program notes. But in this case, because we began the concert with this piece, we decided to talk about the piece later in the program and to just come out and play the music without explanation. Midway through the piece, an elderly man seated in a wheelchair near the front of the concert hall began to weep.

When we came out to play the next piece on the program, we decided to talk about both the first and second pieces, and we described the circumstances in which the Copland was written and mentioned its dedication to a downed pilot. The man in the front of the audience became so disturbed that he had to leave the auditorium. I honestly figured that we would not see him again, but he did come backstage afterwards, tears and all, to explain himself.

What he told us was this: I watched my friend bail out, and watched his parachute open, but the Japanese planes which had engaged us returned and machine gunned across the parachute chords so as to separate the parachute from the pilot, and I watched my friend drop away into the ocean, realizing that he was lost. How does the music do that?

How did it find those feelings and those memories in me? This concert in Fargo was the most important work I have ever done. For me to play for this old soldier and help him connect, somehow, with Aaron Copland, and to connect their memories of their lost friends, to help him remember and mourn his friend, this is my work. This is why music matters. The responsibility I will charge your sons and daughters with is this: Well, my friends, someday at 8: Whether they go out whole again will depend partly on how well you do your craft.

Frankly, ladies and gentlemen, I expect you not only to master music; I expect you to save the planet. I no longer even expect it to come from the religions of the world, which together seem to have brought us as much war as they have peace. Bach company of performers.
