Dates: Fall ’19: Oct 5 & 26, Nov 16, Dec 7
Location: Maplewood, New Jersey, USA
Renowned mostly adult chamber music workshop for more than 25 years.
Striling Strings has been renamed Maplewood Chamber Music Workshop. The workshop meets for 4 Saturday afternoons from 2 to 5 each semester.
There are two sessions per academic year each composed of 4 Saturday afternoons spaced about a month apart. In the fall and the spring the directors group the players by skill levels to work on their selected pieces. Of course, preformed groups are always more than welcome. Each group is coached by professional musicians for half of the time on each day and works on its own for the remainder. There is a break in the middle of the afternoon for refreshments and hobnobbing. At the end of each afternoon, there is a half-hour presentation of one kind or another geared to be of interest to the participants, perhaps a performance with professionals or a demonstration by an instrument builder or a brief lecture by a music historian. At the final workshop of each session, there is an opportunity for the groups to perform their pieces.
Fall ’19 dates will be Oct 5 & 26, Nov 16, Dec 7
All from 2 to 5 pm

Come play great music with great people and get great coaching!
