Syracuse, N.Y. – May 24, 2013: Over 2,000 visitors are expected to attend this year’s Cazenovia Counterpoint festival, Flights of Fancy: Arts Alive in CNY. The festival will bring music, visual arts, theater and poetry to Cazenovia, New York as part of the Society for New Music’s annual summer arts festival this July. Over fifteen unique performances and interactive sessions will be held across the village of Cazenovia between Wednesday, July 10, 2013 and Saturday, July 20, 2013. The majority of these events are free, and more information on the individual sessions will be announced in the coming month.
One of the key elements of this year’s Cazenovia Counterpoint festival is the interaction between festival participants, particularly youth, and performers. “This is a very unique festival in that it involves youth in several different ways,” said Society founder, Neva Pilgrim. “From our Rising Stars performance to our Young Composers’ Corner, Cazenovia Counterpoint pairs youth with professionals and peers to allow them to explore their creativity…we are privileged to have countless skilled creative artists in Central New York and the results of these collaborations are always a wonder to watch.”
