During the week-long session, participants will receive daily chamber music coachings, private lessons with Esterhazy Quartet members, and the opportunity to perform in solo masterclasses. Each chamber ensemble will perform at least twice during the session. The combination of a low student-faculty ratio, stimulating and talented peers, and the challenge of some of the world’s greatest music will inspire students to achieve tremendous musical and personal growth.
