The Maine Student Program

DEADLINE: postmarked Saturday, MARCH 18, 2017

Maine musicians join us for a week of chamber music making at Kneisel Hall Chamber Music Festival in Blue Hill. If you love music, love playing with friends and want to learn a piece in depth with a college mentor, Kneisel Hall is the place for you! You will be placed in a chamber ensemble with a Kneisel Hall Young Artist. Kneisel Hall faculty work with your groups every day.

The summer is divided into two sessions; in each young artists are assigned two ensembles where they study the pieces in depth. There are daily rehearsals, coachings and master classes, and performances throughout the summer.

2017 Maine Student Faculty:

Laurie Smukler, Artistic Director

Patricia Stowell, Program Director
