Overview of Tuscany Concert Tour

Monday, July 22 - Wednesday July 31, 2019

CMC Alumni will join our summer camp at The Masters School in Dobbs Ferry for the last week from July 15 - 20, 2019. Chamber music with alumni will be formed and coached by our faculty. Orchestra players will join the CMC orchestra during this time.

After our session at the Masters School, students over the age of 12 are invited to attend our concert tour in Tuscany, Italy with Festival Orchestre Giovanili. Festival Orchestra Giovanili (FOG) was founded in Florence in 1999 to give young musicians from all over the world the opportunity to be part of a unique musical experience in the beautiful region of Tuscany, Italy.

Chamber music concerts, orchestra concerts and the distinct possibility of collaborating with another youth orchestra from another country will highlight the tour. Ample time has been set aside for sight-seeing and bonding.

Alumni session

Monday, July 15 - Saturday, July 20, 2019

The Chamber Music Center of New York is proud to partner with The Masters School to offer a unique chamber music experience. Thirty minutes from Manhattan, surrounded by the greenery and fresh air of the Hudson River Valley, the Masters campus at Dobbs Ferry offers open spaces, Neo-Classical architecture, and an environment seemingly worlds away, where we can devote our focus to chamber music.

ALUMNI CMC SUMMER 2019 at The Masters School will be a 1 week program of intensive chamber music training. Alumni will enjoy working with other students their age, while being coached by some of the finest coaches from New York City. Masterclasses, workshops on topics such as Practice Techniques, guest lecturers, guest performers, and field trips will round out the experience. An outreach concert and final concert will end the workshop.

The unique aspects of the CMC program – our faculty of professional working musicians, innovative team teaching techniques, and a supportive environment – will be the hallmarks of this inspiring session.

There will be time for outdoor activities during the afternoon, which includes swimming, soccer, frisbee and just relaxing on the beautiful campus of the Masters School.
