Simply , strings...a chamber music workshop
October 26-29, 2017
An "invitation" to enthusiastic amateur string players....of all levels of play....to join us in a non-competitive, musical workshop experience. We also welcome a "few" wind players and pianists( on a very limited basis.) This workshop will be held in the charming and historic, Inn at Manchester, in Manchester, Vermont. Our outstanding coaching staff will support and guide us in the exploration of playing and interpreting chamber music literature.
Small chamber ensembles and appropriate repertoire will be assigned to each participant several weeks prior to the workshop. Each participant will be assigned two pieces to prepare. The music and group assignments will be based upon a "self evaluation" section in the application.
The program's focus will be on playing and interpreting the musical literature in a chamber group setting. Sight reading in evening ensembles will be encouraged to help enhance each participant's confidence level of playing in groups. There will be ample opportunities to put together "pick up" groups during the day ,as well as participating in an informal "play-in" on Thursday evening. Come Join us! Make new friends, meet old ones, and enjoy the grandeur of Manchester, Vermont, at this time of the year. There's lots to do: hiking, biking, shopping, sightseeing....or just "chilling out" in the beautiful surroundings of the Inn.
