About the Workshop

At Settlement Music School’s Adult Chamber Players Weekend you will work primarily with a fixed group delving deeply into a single work in preparation for an optional performance on Sunday afternoon. You will also have the opportunity to sightread with other participants, getting a taste of the larger repertoire. You can come with a pre-formed group or we will place you in an ensemble with musicians of similar skill level.

The weekend includes a lecture/discussion and performance by the Fairmount String Quartet, an Improvisation Workshop with Dr. David Rudge of Music for People, and StringFlo chair yoga (as featured in Strings Magazine) with live music by composer Dr. Ellen Fishman. You will be coached by members of the Fairmount String Quartet (Saturday only) and by Settlement Music School’s esteemed faculty.

Tuition for the Summer Chamber Festival is $395 and includes all coaching, lectures, and workshops, up to four tickets for the Fairmount String Quartet performance, Meet-and-Greet breakfast on Friday, and lunch and snacks daily.

The campus is near public transportation and is wheelchair accessible.
