The Kessler Academy
Music on Main and The Microcosmos Quartet are delighted to announce the sixth consecutive Kessler Academy for young musicians - a conductorless mentorship orchestra initiative, led by members of the Microcosmos Quartet, and focusing on string orchestra repertoire composed in the past one hundred years. The sixth iteration of this program will take place from August 10 - 15, 2020.
With the understanding that there is no better learning situation than making music alongside those with more experience, the Kessler Academy was established to give young string players an intensive experience preparing and performing a challenging program in a professional context.
This year, in light of current COVID-19 best practices around physical distancing, the final celebratory concert will be captured digitally and streamed online in the early Fall of 2020. Keep checking back for updates!
Your donation will cover rehearsal space rental and music royalties, as well as the mentors’ fees, and will allow to us to continue to offer this program at no cost to its youth participants.
Many thanks for your generosity!
