Our 2016 Workshops
Our Winter Weekend Workshop was enjoyed by 52 players and was held Fri 2/12 – Mon 2/15 (Presidents’ Day weekend). We featured four workshops including a Chamber Orchestra playing Brahms, 20th Century Wind Ensembles, Clarinet Quartets, and Baroque – Focus on Bach. Stephen Redfield, Carol Redman and Tom O’Connor returned as coaches and we welcomed new coaches David Felberg and Paul Wexler.
For the Oxford Workshop, this year we return to Oxford University rom August 29 to September 2 2016 (note the dates are earlier than in 2014). We again use the historic college of St Edmund Hall for a workshop including woodwinds, strings and keyboards with outstanding coaches from Europe.
Our 2017 Workshops
In 2017, we will have our February workshop again over the President’s Day weekend, Feb 17-20th. Additionally, we will have our summer workshop — we will post those dates shortly.
Many of our workshops have been made possible through generous support of ACMP – The Chamber Music Network, and the Clinton B. Ford Fund of its ACMP Foundation, an organization that promotes chamber music activities for amateur musicians.
