May 31 – June 16, 2014
Led by Merry Peckham, the Chamber Music Workshop continues to grow and develop into one of the leading summer chamber music programs of its kind. The program, which celebrated its Tenth Anniversary in 2013, is devoted entirely to the study of great chamber works over two and a half weeks of intense rehearsals, masterclasses, late-night sight reading sessions, and performances. During the first week, the whole community comes together and sings with chorus master Patrick Romano.
The program features an all-star list of chamber music masters. Each faculty member provides daily coachings and present public masterclasses in the evenings.
The program accepts applicants from students age 18 and older, either as individuals or as part of pre-formed groups. In 2013, the Workshop accepted a record 47 violin, viola, cello, and piano students.
