Two week festival devoted to collaboration among composers, instrumentalists, and singing creating contemporary instumental and vocal music for ages 18 and up.
Our resident faculty coaches both preset groups and those that apply individually. During the session, each participant receives a private lesson, is grouped into two different ensembles and rehearses with daily coachings. Chamber music repertoire is sent to participants a few weeks prior to the start of each session. There is the opportunity to perform at the end of the session for each ensemble, and also to hear the faculty in concert.
Located on the shores of Lake Dunmore, (15 miles south of Middlebury College in Vermont) and beneath the Green Mountains our spot is perfect for finding inspiration from nature! Our rustic cabins have electricity, sleep a maximum of 6, and have a bathroom/shower in each cabin. We have individual practice cabins, and a large Rec Hall for dining and performances. The food is outstanding, and caters to fresh, sophisticated palates. If you prefer, local B&Bs are happy to accommodate you; contact us for a list of accommodations.
Although we recommend being unplugged during your 5 days with us, there is wi-fi available.
Locally renown chef and Point CounterPoint favorite Steve Lanphere will offer a hands-on cooking class using regionally-sourced and foraged Vermont ingredients that will result in an amazing dinner for all attending.
