Raphael Chamber Music Workshop
Participants for SESSION 1 arrive on Sunday, August 9, and depart on Sunday, August 16. Those attending SESSION 2 will arrive on Sunday, August 16 and depart on Sunday, August 23. We will be at the HIGH MOWING SCHOOL in Wilton, New Hampshire. Wilton is between Keene and Manchester, near the village of Peterborough. The school is located on a hilltop with commanding views of the surrounding countryside. There is an outdoor swimming pool, tennis courts, lovely gardens and walkways, and access to nearby woods, lakes and hiking trails.
Ensembles are formed at the beginning of the Workshop and remain together for the entire program. You will receive ensemble coachings every day for each group in which you play. Participants are scheduled for two or three ensembles and will be assigned the repertoire several months in advance of the program. Emphasis is on detailed and in-depth work, development of chamber music skills, and interpretation. There will be evening classes, seminars, sight reading, and informal concerts.
