The Young Performers Program is designed for gifted young musicians seeking to develop their musicianship through intensive training with a faculty of experienced musicians. Students are grouped into ensembles with their colleagues according to level of playing and experience. A daily schedule of ensemble rehearsals, workshops, and coachings with the core teaching faculty plus visiting artists culminates in three public performances. Activities take place each day of the week except most Sundays.
