HEARTLAND CHAMBER MUSIC FESTIVAL VIDEO
HEARTLAND CHAMBER MUSIC FESTIVAL
The summer Festival is an exciting 9 days of chamber music, orchestra, master classes, and student, faculty and guest performances! Each summer, advanced string players ages 12-26 are selected by audition to work one-on-one with internationally renown faculty members who have gathered for the festival with the purpose of inspiring and nurturing the students' development. Distinguished faculty will join us this summer for masterclasses and performances, and 16 students will be selected to perform with the Camerata Chamber Orchestra and perform live on KPR during the Festival!
Festival Scholars is a tuition-free opportunity for 8 highly gifted musicians to receive intense chamber music coaching with Scott Lee and Jackie Lee, to perform live on KPR and to be featured in their own scheduled performance during the Festival.
HEARTLAND CHAMBER MUSIC JUNIOR FESTIVAL
Heartland Chamber Music Junior Festival is 6 exciting days of chamber music coaching, chamber orchestra and masterclasses for selected string students ages 15 and under. Students audition and are placed into small chamber ensembles where they work one-on-one with the faculty for two hours daily in preparation for the final concert. The Junior Festival is held in conjunction with the Heartland Chamber Music Festival so that students can attend all masterclasses and performances in addition to their own scheduled activities.
