The Woodland Chamber Music Workshop is a place where adult amateur musicians of any instrument and all skill levels come together for a weekend of small-ensemble playing and coaching, seminars, chamber orchestra, and fun on the beautiful North Shore of Lake Superior in Northern Minnesota!
Please visit our website for registration information and Workshop details:
The WCMW boasts a fun and supportive atmosphere, and includes strings, winds, brass players, and pianists at all levels of ability.
Luxurious, lakeshore accommodations and meals are included at Surfside on Lake Superior resort in Tofte, Minnesota.
The Gichigami Trio and Betty Braunstein, artist-faculty in residence, give positive and constructive coaching sessions for each ensemble, plus a public concert.
New this summer I'm extremely pleased and excited to welcome nationally-renowned composer, author, and storyteller Rick Sowash as our very special guest at this June's Workshop. Traveling all the way from Cincinnati, Rick will be at the WCMW for the entire duration, joining us to provide insight, illumination, and a bit of humor on the art of composing and writing. Rick's music has been heard in Carnegie Hall, in films, and throughout the country on NPR classical music stations. Check out Rick's website for more information: www.sowash.com.
Participate as a pre-formed group or individual. Individuals will be placed with other participants of similar skill and experience - no auditions required.
Check out the Woodland Chamber Music Workshop website, where you can get all of the details, see pictures read feedback from last year's Workshop, be tantalized by the sample menu (food will be prepared by the award-winning executive chef at the Bluefin Grille!), and beautiful accommodations at Surfside, read about the faculty (the Gichigami Trio and Betty Braunstein are artist-faculty in residence), and register.
The Workshop runs in two sessions:
The full session is Tuesday late-afternoon June 22nd-Sunday early-afternoon June 27th.
The "short" session is Thursday late-afternoon June 24th through Sunday early-afternoon June 27th.
Space is limited and registration may be limited after June 1st.
Please feel free to contact me with questions or for more information.
Additionally, I have a paper brochure and registration form I can send to you if you'd prefer. If you know of anyone who may be interested who might want a brochure, or a place you could distribute some brochures, I'd be in your debt!
Thanks, and have a great summer -- hope to see you at WCMW '10!
