Participants in the 2019 Summer Solstice Chamber Music Workshop for Community Players will study and play chamber music together in a relaxed atmosphere conducive to learning. The workshop is designed to develop their performance skills while also enhancing their understanding and appreciation of the art of chamber music.

Coaches will be violist Ethan Filner (formerly with San Francisco’s Cypress String Quartet); violinist Ewald Cheung (graduate of McGill and Juilliard); pianist Patricia Tao (professor at the University of Alberta); and Rafael Hoekman, principal cellist of the Edmonton Symphony Orchestra.

The workshop will take place for five days; June 11–15, 2019, ending with a performance on Monday, June 17, 2019.

Each group will receive daily two-hour coaching sessions. Coaching sessions will generally occur between 4:30-8:30 PM, although times can be flexible to meet participants' needs. Groups can opt for 5 instead of 10 hours of coaching.
