Master Class @ Southern Vermont Arts Center
Jul 29 @ 11:00 am – 1:00 pm

A master class is a truly unique experience whether or not one has any knowledge of chamber music.

 

MMF’s young artists will perform a movement of chamber work. Masters will then analyze the performance and take the groups through various sections of the pieces, offering constructive criticism and observations from deeply experienced eyes and ears.

 

This is a rare opportunity to see just how chamber music is made, and made even better!
