This summer, the Norfolk Chamber Music Festival in Norfolk, CT, celebrates its 75th anniversary and bids farewell to longtime director Paul Hawkshaw.
The festival’s roots lie with Ellen Battell Stoeckel and her husband, Carl Stoeckel — son of Yale’s first music professor, Gustav Stoeckel. They dedicated their lives to supporting musical excellence in Norfolk, establishing a local music society in 1899 that eventually became the Norfolk Chamber Music Festival. MORE
