Due to a lack of registration to play at this event, ACMP is canceling the masterclass planned for June 26. We will either reschedule this class or schedule something similar in Fall 2022.
Sign up your ensemble as an active participant for violist Luke Fleming's online Chamber Music Master Class: Sunday, June 26 from 2pm to5pm EDT on Zoom (with a 1pm soundcheck).
Survey link: https://www.surveymonkey.com/r/67XR5LY
NOTE: Only one ensemble member should fill out this survey on behalf of the group!
Repertoire: one movement of any chamber piece for any instrumentation!
The class is open to serious amateur ensembles who want to rehearse in advance of the master class and be prepared to work with Luke on the finer details of ensemble playing and interpretation. The class will take place on Zoom - and ensembles will be expected to play together in the same room, ideally with some decent sound equipment (if possible) for optimum sound quality and listener enjoyment.
ACMP will choose 4 ensembles to participate, based on what will make the best balance for the class. If you are not chosen this time around, there will be other opportunities!
Please fill out and submit the survey by the end of the day on Sunday, June 5
