The David Einfeldt Chamber Music Seminar
August 2-11, 2013
The Einfeldt Chamber Music Seminar is an intensive residential program for advanced high school-aged string players. Students experience a dynamic combination of classes to help their musicianship grow individually and as part of a group. All students will be placed in an ensemble and have daily rehearsal time, as well as daily coaching by an assigned member of the Hausmann Quartet
and guest cellist Rebecca Wenham
We use our audition process not solely for admissions, but also for quartet placement. Students are expected arrive at the Seminar with individual parts polished to performance level so they’re ready to learn from their assigned coach/member of the Hausmann Quartet and work with their peers to develop a group identity.
Seminar students will also have the opportunity to experience working with Deborah Barrett Price (Denison University) and Annie Fullard (Cavani Quartet) and several members of our distinguished Hartt School faculty. Students will engage with the faculty in both group and individual learning opportunities, which will provide them with a sense of the type of experience they could have as college students at The Hartt School.
Quartet masterclasses led by the Hausmann Quartet members and Rebecca Wenham will give students the opportunity to play for one another, and to receive collective feedback from our resident ensemble.
Our highly successful Seminar classes are an interactive experience for Einfeldt students to learn more about the art of becoming and being a quartet. The Hausmann Quartet will guide Seminar students in the finer points of this process throughout our 9 days together.
New to the program in 2013, are Careers Seminars. Among many other things, high school is a time of discernment. Active professionals in careers such as arts administration, various types of performance, and different teaching environments will engage with our students as they are thinking about what they might like to study in college.
The Hartt School is student-centered. At the Seminar, we embrace that philosophy and offer students an intensive, student-focused, program rich with opportunity for growth individually and as chamber ensembles.
