Gabriola String Ensemble Retreat
The 19th Gabriola String Ensemble Retreat (GSER) will once again be held at The Haven resort (240 Davis Rd, Gabriola Island, BC V0R 1X1, BC Canada). This is a four day weekend event that includes intensive coaching by members of Trio Accord, the Borealis String Quartet, and pianist Arnold Draper.
The Retreat, started in 2002, draws chamber music enthusiasts from Canada, the USA and the UK. It is intended for adult amateur musicians that wish to improve their chamber music ensemble playing technique. Both pre-formed and established ensembles are welcome. Although the retreat is primarily string ensemble orientated, string groups that include piano or woodwind players are also welcome.
Applications open September 1st 2019 and close January 1st 2020.
