    Master Class

    Members of the competition jury present master classes for gifted local piano students.

The Youth String Camerata, led by conductor Marcia Ferritto, provides an opportunity for advanced students to experience the excitement and challenge of rehearsing and performing music in the intimate setting of a chamber ensemble. The group is limited in size for this purpose.

The students are introduced to the study and performance of works of varying styles. Each piece of music draws on the entire spectrum of skill of the individual player and of the group as a whole.
