March Chamber Music Retreat at Widewater Retreat Center
March Chamber Music Retreat is held every year on the first weekend in March. It runs from Thursday evening thru Sunday at noon. The retreat is limited to 40 participants (10 1st violins, 10 2nd violins, 10 violas and 10 cellos) because of space and music availability. The music is borrowed from Blue Lake and consists of string quartets, quintets and string orchestra. There are sessions where the music is played by the entire group and there is time for ad hoc smaller groups.to play individually. Coaching for small ensemble groups (self-selected or assigned if desired) is held on Saturday. Sessions are also held for instrument specific instruction.
Most participants stay at retreat center, with meals at the center being severed Friday through Sunday breakfast. Others stay at nearby accommodations.
We welcome all levels of play. The retreat's motto is "Play your best and fake the rest".
