About the Adult Chamber Music Workshop

Alberto and Naho Parrini, Directors

Summers in Vermont remain a cherished memory in the minds of the many professional and non-professional musicians who have attended Kinhaven Music School. Kinhaven’s emphasis on non-competitive, supportive music-making has been at the very heart of its philosophy. This approach—the basis for our success with students of all ages—is the guiding spirit for the Adult Chamber Music workshop. The workshop is a wonderful way for Kinhaven alumni to re-experience the unique musical environment of Kinhaven, or for new musicians to experience it for the first time.

The Adult Chamber Music Workshop is open to string, wind, and piano players, 18 years or older, of all levels of experience. Existing groups are welcome, or you will be matched with a chamber group. The workshop will begin with supper on Wednesday and will end with a concert on Sunday morning, followed by lunch. Participation in this concert is optional. The workshop is open to string, wind, and piano players, 18 years or older, of all levels and experience. Existing groups are welcome. Acceptance will be based on the need for a balanced instrumentation and the date the application is received.

Kinhaven has camp facilities consisting of communal cabins with bunk beds and shared bathrooms. There is electricity in all cabins. The Common Room in the Main House is available day and night for reading, visiting, and relaxing in front of the fireplace. Participants have the option of commuting from one of the many inns or motels in the area. Meals will be provided from Wednesday supper to Sunday lunch. The Kinhaven kitchen is famous for its delicious homemade fare—fresh, nutritious and non-institutional. Vegetarian meals will be available.

More information about dates, tuition, and audition requirements for 2018 will be available in late October. Please join our mailing list to be notified when applications are open for next summer’s program.
