The Baroque trio sonata, the Classical string quartet, the passionate outpourings of Schubert, Brahms, Tchaikovsky, and Bartok – much of the greatest music of the Western tradition has been composed for small groups of musicians. String players, along with advanced pianists and woodwind players are invited to explore great works of the literature. Interested individuals and preformed groups audition for placement and repertoire. Coaching, on Tuesday evenings, culminates in formal and informal performances. Masterclasses have been given by members of the Cleveland, Pacifica, Lark, American, Prazak, Maia, and Chicago String Quartets.
