Gettysburg Chamber Music Workshop
The Workshop is an immersion program for adult amateurs in the study of string quartet literature. Players with the requisite skills and experience are welcome. We offer a challenging yet supportive environment where participants will 1) study two works, to be prepared in advance, with an assigned group, under the guidance of a coach (for possible performance); 2) enlarge their knowledge of the literature and sharpen their sight-reading skills through supervised reading sessions with different groups; and 3) play music of their choice in informal “pick-up” sessions during the evening. Enrollment is limited to 12 groups; interested musicians are encouraged to submit applications as soon as possible. A $100.00 deposit must be included, which will be refunded if we cannot place an applicant. The application deadline is April 15; participants will be notified of assignments by early May. The Workshop begins at 6:30 p.m. on June 21 and ends at 12:30 p.m. on June 25 (if absolutely necessary, participants may leave late in the evening of June 18, with notice).
