Brochure and Application 2018

Dear Friends,

We are very happy to let you know that our workshop will be returning to the beautiful High Mowing School next August. Please note that due to our travel schedule we have an early application deadline: February 1, 2018, so please try to get your applications in to us by then.

As in the past, we are pleased to be able to continue to offer two consecutive sessions this coming summer.

WHEN AND WHERE:

Participants for SESSION 1 arrive on Sunday, August 5, and depart on Sunday, August 12.  Those attending SESSION 2 will arrive on Sunday, August 12 and depart on Sunday, August 19. We will be at the HIGH MOWING SCHOOL in Wilton, New Hampshire. Wilton is between Keene and Manchester, near the village of Peterborough. The school is located on a hilltop with commanding views of the surrounding countryside. There is an outdoor swimming pool, tennis courts, lovely gardens and walkways, and access to nearby woods, lakes and hiking trails. The nearest airports are in Manchester (40 minutes away) and Boston (less than 1 1/2 hours).

THE PROGRAM:

Ensembles are formed at the beginning of the Workshop and remain together for the entire program.  You will receive ensemble coachings every day for each group in which you play.  Participants are scheduled for two or three ensem­bles and will be assigned the repertoire several months in advance of the program. Emphasis is on detailed and in-depth work, development of chamber music skills, and interpretation. There will be evening classes, seminars, sight reading and informal concerts.

FACULTY:

You will be coached, encouraged, housed, fed (lavishly) and occasionally entertained by the Raphael Trio’s cellist, SUSAN SALM and pianist, DANIEL EPSTEIN, directors of the workshop. We will be announcing our other outstanding faculty soon.

ROOM & BOARD:

We will be staying in the comfortable resident housing of the High Mowing School.  Accommodations are in well-appointed single or double rooms (as requested) with shared bathrooms.  The dining room is noted for outstanding organic meals.

WHO SHOULD APPLY:

Advanced adult instrumentalists (including piano) of all ages are welcome. Pre-formed ensembles are welcome to attend and may participate as a group or split up and mix and match with others. For those of you not al­ready in a group, we will place you according to your instrument and ability, and will assign suitable repertoire well in advance of your session. You may apply for one or both weeks; if you are applying for only one session, please indicate which one you prefer, and we will try to honor your request, although we cannot guarantee it.

PLEASE INDICATE WHETHER THIS IS A PREFERENCE OR THE ONLY TIME YOU CAN COME

 COST:

For a full week — room, board, tuition and recreation  — the cost is $TBA.  Single or double room requests should be noted on your application.

WE ARE LIMITED TO ABOUT 35 PARTICIPANT PLACES PER SESSION, SO PLEASE DO SEND US YOUR APPLICATION PROMPTLY
