Pianists will have the opportunity to work with both faculty pianists. Collaboration is the primary focus of this festival, and pianists will be given a variety of assignments which will include:

  • Chamber music with string players
  • Art song collaboration with a singer
  • Solo piano literature
  • Collaboration with student composer on a new work

Pianists will have frequent access to faculty for lessons, coachings, and master classes, and are encouraged to bring solo literature in addition to the works assigned.

I couldn’t ask for a better way to spend a month of my summer.
