Chamber Music Intensive

August 2-7, 2021
Registration Deadline July 25

Our program offers an opportunity for string players (violin, viola, cello and bass), ages 15 and up to play chamber music in a non-competitive setting.
olinists Joana Genova (University of Indianapolis, The Indianapolis Quartet) and Heather Braun (Boston University, Arneis String Quartet), violist Ariel Rudiakov (University of Indianapolis, Danbury Symphony Orchestra) and cellist Tom Landschoot (Arizona State University, Rossetti Quartet) will bring their extensive experience into the coaching sessions and a faculty performance.
The daily sessions will consist of coachings, opportunities for the groups to rehearse in their own, side-by-side string repertoire reading and informal masterclasses. In some cases, private lessons may be allowed.
