Prelude students will interact with students in the Kontras Quartet Chamber Music Workshop.
Traditional and school string program students with two or more years of experience, including some form of playing in orchestra or a small group, are welcomed with the recommendation of their teacher.
Students will have repertoire sent to them in advance and should prepare their part thoroughly for the workshop. Enrollment is limited so that each student can be placed in a balanced ensemble.
