ASHLAND – The first-ever Stone Park Music Festival in Ashland will highlight classical music, explained founder Grace Soonjoo Moon.
The Stone Park Music Festival will present classical music performances of world-class quality and engages a variety of participants through varying contents, said Moon.
Founded in June 2020 by pianist Soonjoo Moon, the goal of the October 1 festival is to bring joy to the communities through classical music.
“Generally classical music festivals consist of concerts, master classes, chamber music, music related workshops, lessons, and competitions. While some classical music festivals are meant for only certain participants, the Stone Park Music Festival is a family friendly classical music festival that welcomes everybody who likes classical music or would like to get to know about classical music including children, young adults, adults, and seniors,” said Moon in a press release.
“The first year of the Stone Park Music Festival will have a concert featuring masterpieces performed by highly respected artists, Emmanuel Feldman and Duo Cello e Basso, and explanations of each piece between performances,” said Moon.
However, a music competition will be added next fall, she said.
The festival will bring pleasure to the communities, make classical music approachable, and unite people’s hearts by sharing appreciation for both music and nature, said Moon.
Classical music is beneficial to everyone regardless of their age since it can improve mental health and brain function, explained Moon.
The concert is scheduled for October 1 at 3 p.m. at Stone Park in Ashland.
“I hope the festival will grow every year and become a one-of-a-kind landmark in the Boston MetroWest area,” said Moon.
