What is Young Artist Chamber Music Program?

Kneisel Hall Young Artist Chamber Music Program: 2015 Sunday, June 28 – Sunday, August 16

The Kneisel Hall Young Artist Chamber Music Program is a rigorous seven-week chamber music program for fifty international pre-professional young artists (20 violinists, 9 violists, 14 cellists and 7 pianists) 18 years of age or older. The summer is divided in two sessions each of which includes daily rehearsals, coachings, master classes, concerts and performances. In each session the young artists study in depth and perform two chamber works. The summer includes rehearsals, coachings, master classes, concerts and performances. Both sessions conclude with a series of public Young Artist Concerts. (2015: July 18, 20, 21, August 12, 13, 15).

The small faculty, drawn from major conservatories and universities, work closely with the young artists. They rehearse mornings, coach ensembles afternoons and present weekly Festival Concerts Friday evening and Sunday afternoon.
