About the Workshop

Study masterworks of the chamber music repertoire with the world-class musicians of the Haven String Quartet! Join us for an exciting day of playing, performances, camaraderie and musical growth as you receive coachings and a master class with Music Haven’s Resident Quartet. The Adult Chamber Music Seminar takes place May 10th, 2020, in New Haven, CT.

We will welcome you on Sunday morning, where we will have a meet and greet with the musicians and other festival participants before we break off into coachings and rehearsals. Each group will get a chance to work with different members of the HSQ throughout the day, and at least half of the time throughout the day will be coached. Lunch will be provided by Music Haven, and after afternoon coachings and rehearsals, the HSQ will lead an open performance/master class for participants.

Included in your tuition for the Seminar are two tickets to the Haven String Quartet’s concert on Saturday, May 9th, 2020 at 7:30pm, at the Unitarian Society of New Haven, 700 Hartford Turnpike, Hamden, CT. 

Tuition for this action-packed weekend is $175 per person (including a $50 non-refundable deposit upon application). All proceeds from the Seminar will support Music Haven’s award-winning programming, which includes free after-school lessons and instruments for 80 youth in New Haven’s most under-served neighborhoods. 

All levels are welcome! Preference will be given to pre-formed groups. Individual applicants are welcome, with the understanding that they will be organized into a group. Individual applicants not applying as a group are asked to submit a 5-minute placement video or recording — either of a recent solo you’ve worked on, or of you playing in a chamber group — to Resident Cellist Philip Boulanger
