Since 2001, the Young Artist Program has offered an immersive two-week chamber music experience to talented, hard-working pianists and string players aged 16 or older. Participants receive mentorship and chamber music coaching from faculty and guest artists, experiences with new music by young composers, as well as private lessons, workshops, master classes and professional performing opportunities. Our 2021 faculty: Nancy Dahn and Timothy Steeves (Duo Concertante), Vernon Regehr, Andrew Staniland, with guest artists the Verona Quartet, Gryphon Trio, Alexander Kortsantia, Serena Canin, and Dov Scheindlin.
