In 1997 Ben Wolff and Rachel Matthews co-founded the Foothills Chamber Music Festival in Winston-Salem, North Carolina. For seven years Ben led the festival as cellist and co-Artistic Director as it presented a celebrated series of summer performances, lectures and symposia at the Reynolda House Museum of American Art, the Southeast Center for Contemporary Art, and the Delta Fine Arts Center.
Beth Oakes participated in the festival, and many friends and family attended. The album below shows some of the attendees.
