About the Workshop

The Lyra Music Young Artist Performance Program is a 2-week classical music summer camp located in Hudson Valley, NY. Dedicated young musicians will be inspired through their intensive study of solo and chamber music repertoire with Lyra Music Faculty Artists and Lyra Music Guest Artists-in-Residence. Students will focus on performance technique while benefiting from the unique experience of performing multiple times each week in a variety of settings, including indoor and outdoor outreach concerts with the community, a final gala student event held at the Howland Cultural Center, home of the Howland Chamber Music Circle, and opportunities to participate in and attend masterclasses and concerts produced for the Lyra Music Festival and performed by world-class guest artists.

Lyra Young Artists are a select group of applicants who demonstrate a high level of proficiency on their instruments and are able to learn advanced repertoire quickly. This is a competitive audition-based program, open to violinists, violists, cellists, and pianists ages 13-18. Although prior chamber music experience is not required, Lyra will give preference to students who have previously worked in ensembles. Once admitted to the program, competition is no longer a factor. Lyra Music supports the musical, emotional and personal development of every participant through a nurturing, non-competitive environment where we encourage each student to reach their full potential. Together we will develop collaborative ensemble skills, encourage students to work as a team and to support one another in both their chamber music and solo performances throughout the festival.

Engagement with Lyra Music Festival guest artists and performance opportunities will begin in the first days of the program. The Young Artist Performance Program is small by design, and Lyra Music’s outstanding faculty and staff support students as they work together in a family-like atmosphere alongside the world-class guest artists-in-residence with the Lyra Music Festival, and with their peers. The Young Artist Performance Program is held in the charming town of Cornwall-on-Hudson at The Storm King School in the heart of New York’s Hudson Valley. Students will find the beautiful, safe, and inviting campus and facilities at Storm King the perfect place to hone their skills and enjoy organized, staff-led social and sports activities, dining hall meals, free time, and regional excursions.
