The focus of this year’s festival is a quartet workshop for adult amateur string players and pianists taught by visiting artists, Miho Zaitsu (cello), Jonathan Weber (violin and viola), Marc Ramirez (violin and viola) and Olivia Hajioff (violin and viola).

The festival hosts will be the Middlebury Community Music Center (mcmcvt.org) and the Middlebury Congregational Church, located across the street from the music center.

There will be two opportunities to sightread with our coaches, on Friday evening we will all gather to read chamber orchestra repertoire and then on Saturday afternoon in small ensembles.   Our coaches will offer an intimate open rehearsal performance for participants and their friends and families on Saturday evening.
