Chamber Music Discussion Panel - Saturday, February 11 at 10:30 a.m.
While cultivating solo playing skills is often the primary focus of weekly lessons, there is a wide variety of musical opportunities available to young musicians when it comes to collaborating and engaging with their communities beyond the private studio!
Please join us on Saturday morning, February 11 at 10:30 a.m. (Steinway Piano Gallery of Kansas City, 9512 Marshall Drive, Lenexa, KS) for a "Topics in Chamber Music: Opportunities Beyond Solo Playing" Information, Discussion and Q&A Panel with chamber music professionals currently active in the areas of performance, education, and arts administration.
Panel speakers include: Lee Hartman (Director of Programming, Harriman-Jewell Series), Ellen Sommer (Professor of Practice, KU School of Music) and Ashley Stanfield (Violist, The Opus 76 Quartet) with moderator Nicholas Dold (Director, Kansas City Young Chamber Musicians).
Admission is free and open to the public, but requires RSVP to ensure seating: send email to email@example.com. We look forward to seeing you there!
