Chamber Music Workshop

The Maestro (Dr. Mann) is organizing a Southland Chamber Music Workshop!

Plans are now being finalized - and it's time to register!.

Established groups are welcome, Groups who form expressly for the workshop are welcome, and individuals may also "sign up" and be placed in groups. Student, Amateur, and Professional level performers are all welcome. This is an "immersion experience" - a whole weekend of chamber music!

Our original Jan dates are not going to work, so we are postponing this. Possibly will be April 21-22. For now we are setting that as a tentative date. Stay tuned for updates.

Planned activities include coaching sessions, rehearsals,
opportunities to read new works, masterclasses, evening concerts, a final concert featuring participants, and more.
