Music Haven Adult Chamber Music Seminar

31 March, 2019
Haven String Quartet, Music Haven's Quartet in Residence

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 March 31st, 2019, 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, March 30th, 2019. For the concert on the 30th, The Haven String Quartet will be joined by Music Haven Resident Violinist Patrick Doane and renowned Grammy-nominated pianist Andrius Žlabys for their third series concert featuring the soaring and timeless Brahms B major Piano Trio, the explosive Franck Piano Quintet, as well as the East Coast Premiere of Andrius Žlabys’ “Movement for String Quartet and Piano.”

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. If you can't attend the seminar this year but still wish to support Music Haven, DONATE HERE!
