Manchester and the Mountains ...a chamber music workshop May 15 - 19, 2019 (with "optional" 4th night of May 15th) Manchester, Vermont Our 13th annual workshop weekend
The program’s focus will be on playing repertoire authentically as chamber group musicians. Sight-reading sessions and Master Classes will be offered. There will be ample time factored into our busy schedule to enjoy the ambiance of the greater Manchester area: Great shopping! Great food! Great hiking, running, golfing, biking and walking. There are many sight-seeing opportunities to be experienced and enjoyed!
Small chamber ensembles will be assigned. Placement and assignments will be based upon a self-evaluation questionnaire. Each participant will receive his/her music assignments several weeks prior to the workshop. Special attention will be given to musicians who have limited experience playing in chamber ensembles, or those who “self-assess” as C- or D level players. Groups and repertoire will be carefully assigned to meet the needs of ALL levels of participants in order to maximize your weekend experience. Pre-formed groups welcomed!
