Participants will rehearse and perform with faculty members and have a music video production of their performances.

Standard chamber music repertoire as well as arrangements of popular and non-traditional chamber works will be explored during the festival. Internationally acclaimed faculty artists will record personalized rehearsal videos for participants to rehearse with and will give one on one lessons as well as group coaching.

These in-depth lessons and discussions on individual technique, chamber music skills, and communication will enhance your musicianship and skill sets as soloists and chamber musicians.
