Chamber Music Seminar at Stanford with St. Lawrence String Quartet
This 10-day intensive program is designed for those with a serious ongoing interest in chamber music and follows a rigorous schedule of study and performance in a uniquely supportive environment, blending advanced students destined for careers in performance with passionate adult musicians. During the Seminar, participants receive dynamic instruction from members of the St. Lawrence String Quartet as well as special guest faculty in a relaxed and supportive atmosphere. Participants focus on one or two major works in chamber music literature while learning the delicate art of cooperation as part of an intimate group.
The SLSQ Chamber Music Seminar will be held on the Stanford University campus. The Seminar attracts participants from 18 to 82 years, ranging from intermediate to advanced in skill. Though most participants are string players, we also include pianists and wind players with an interest in chamber music. Participants from our previous seminars have overwhelmingly rated their experience outstanding and hoped to return again to enjoy the experience of working with the St. Lawrence String Quartet and our adjunct faculty.
The 2019 Seminar will run from Saturday, June 22 to Sunday, June 30. (Participants are expected to arrive Friday June 21.) Seminar programming will begin Saturday, June 22. Click-through to our Outreach Page to see the SLSQ's Chamber Music Seminar events for 2018.
