Chamber Days with the Fry Street Quartet

CELLO AND VIOLIN ARE FULL FOR CHAMBER DAYS (a few viola spots left so please wait for confirmation before making plans.) 

$895 (January-March 31st)  / $970 (Starting April 1st if space is available)

June 15-24, 2023

We encourage pre-formed groups as well as individuals to sign up for Chamber Days  (Violin book 9+, Viola book 6+ Cello book 7+)

Registration (This may fill faster than we can put a note which instruments are full, so please submit and you will receive an auto-confirmation.  One of us will need to email you as well confirming that you do have a spot within 48 hrs of submitting your form) Chamber Days will keep a waiting list for each instrument once full.

Students who would like a more extensive experience with chamber music are invited to enroll in Chamber Days. Only 32 Advanced String Camp students can participate in Chamber Days – eight string quartets. Enroll early, as it is on a first come, first served basis, as well as age and level to complete well-matched quartets.

Chamber Days is an intense and focused experience for the entire institute, with participants working with the members of the Fry Street Quartet throughout. For the first three days, all groups receive two coachings a day with members of the FSQ, have two independent rehearsals, enjoy lunch all together, and participate in master classes, seminars, and performances. These same quartets continue with daily coachings and rehearsals during the second week of ISSI. This is a phenomenal chance to work with a world-class performing and teaching ensemble!

Price includes coachings and rehearsals, lunch for the first three days, master classes, Fry Street Quartet seminars, performances opportunities, and more!

All participants are required to submit a video recording of two contrasting works, as well as a list of prior chamber music works studied (if any). Note that these additional materials are due by April 1st, 2023. 

Please use this form to submit your video.

Enrichment option: Chamber days participants can only choose the 8am classes for enrichment since their schedule during the ISSI day is full.
