This year the Bowdoin International Music Festival features Anne Akiko Meyers, one of the world’s leading violin soloists. Angel Gil-Ordóñez conducts the Festival’s orchestra for Mendelssohn’s Violin Concerto in E Minor, Op. 64.

Her performances of Mendelssohn’s Violin Concerto with the Orpheus Chamber Orchestra were met with rave reviews.

Also on the program: Jennifer Higdon’s luminous chamber work, and Mozart’s showpiece for oboe, performed by Festival artist James Austin Smith.
