Dear valued audience members,


As we embark on this musical journey together, we want to share the essence of our unique summer academy. Our unwavering commitment to education and the well-being of our talented students leads us to approach performances in a distinctive manner.


Throughout the two-week festival, all performers, whether soloists or ensembles, immerse themselves in the preparation of assigned chamber music, honing their skills with dedication and passion. Under the careful guidance of our esteemed teachers and coaches, they practice and rehearse as ensembles, striving for excellence.


The magic unfolds when our faculty, after many insightful coachings and heartfelt discussions, determine that a group is “ready to perform.” This often means discovering the concert program only a day or two before each performance!


We cherish the individual growth of our students, and thus, some groups may perform more than once, showcasing multiple movements or even entire pieces throughout the two weeks. Others may present a single movement, moving at a pace that best suits their learning journey.


By embracing this approach, we uphold the highest standards of musical excellence, ensuring that every concert is an extraordinary and enchanting experience. Rest assured, by the end of the festival, all groups and soloists will have had the opportunity to shine brightly on stage.


Thank you for being part of this incredible musical celebration. Your support and understanding are vital in nurturing the talents of these aspiring musicians.


With warmest regards,


Christopher Wilshere

Artistic Director
