The Beth Newdome Fellowship Artists will perform a free concert on Wednesday April 19, 2017, at Savannah Grand, as part of the Amelia Island Chamber Music Festival. Savannah Grand is located at 1900 Amelia Trace Court. The concert is free and open to the public.

Beth Newdome was a beloved and frequent performer at the Amelia Island Chamber Music Festival and played a crucial role in helping to get the Festival started. She was a consummate artist who "learned the integral difference of playing music and playing an instrument. In her hands, her violin gave voice to joy and sorrow, tears and laughter, interpreting emotion in a way words fail. Her upbeat personality made her a friend to many and coupled with her talent on the violin, made her a much sought after soloist." Beth fought cancer for over five years and died in February 2010.
