The Olympic Music Festival, 7360 Center Road, Quilcene, continues its 30th season of “Concerts in the Barn” with a “Beethoven Festival” at 2 p.m. Saturday-Sunday, July 27-28.


The program includes Violin Sonata No. 5 in F Major, Op. 24 “Spring”; Piano Trio in D Major, Op. 70, No. 1 “Ghost”; and String Quartet in C Major, Op. 59, No. 3 “Rasumovsky.”


Festival founder Alan Iglitzin on viola and Paul Hersh on piano are joined by newcomer Stefan Milenkovich on violin and returning artists Stefan Hersh, violin, and Bonnie Hampton, cello.


Milenkovich’s eclectic background includes not only classical music, but also forays into rock, ethno-jazz and collaboration on “Tango Story” — a project with Slovenian ensemble Ars Tango, where he performed both as a violinist and a dancer. Hampton, a founding member of the Naumburg Award-winning Francesco Trio, taught for 30 years at the San Francisco Conservatory of Music.


The chamber music concerts are held in an early 1900s dairy barn, which has been converted into a performance hall with exceptional natural acoustics. The festival grounds open at 11 a.m. for early birds to wander the farm and have a leisurely picnic before the barn doors open at 1 p.m.


Prior to the concerts, patrons are encouraged to visit the Milking Shed, where souvenirs, CDs, clothing, beverages and snacks are sold.


Ticket prices range from $18-$33 and may be purchased by phone (360-732-4800) or online at The website also includes program details for all the summer offerings, or call for a free brochure.
