Amateur Chamber Music Retreat

Save the date: Registration to the Chamber Music Retreat opens October 1!

The Chamber Music Retreat is designed for string players and pianists (and occasionally other instrumentalists) who love to play, want a chance to work on their chamber music skills, and would like to share their enthusiasm for music with old and new friends for a weekend at Garth Newel. No professional experience is required or expected. Preference will be given to pre-formed groups in the application process.

The weekend is full of chamber music coachings, rehearsals with fellow participants, reading sessions, a final performance by retreat groups, recreation, great food, company and conversation.

Please register early, and join us for this weekend of fun and friendship, packed with unforgettable musical experiences!

March 22-25, 2018

Fee: $320 which includes all chamber music coachings, seminars, performances, meals and snacks.
