Weekend of Chamber Music offers Chamber Music Fellowships to pre-professional musicians at its annual two-week July Summer Festival in the Catskills. In 2019, from July 14th to the 28th, WCM Fellows will have the opportunity to work with WCM’s outstanding roster of performing artists and 2019 Composer-in-Residence, Harold Meltzer.

WCM’s Fellowship program offers up to five pre-professional performers and composers festival residencies, consisting of:

– Lessons and coachings with festival artists
– Career mentoring & training in festival curating and management
– Two public concerts
– Collaboration between composers & performers, culminating in new work to be presented at the final Fellows performance
– Extensive informal time for interaction with festival artists

Participants will gain first-hand experience of the inner workings of a chamber music festival, from rehearsal to performance, management to grant-writing, and administration.

Weekend of Chamber Music will provide housing and lunches will be catered and shared among artists on the porch of the Eddie Adams barn.
Weekend of Chamber Music is located in the southern Catskill Mountains northwest of New York City

Hear from Weekend of Chamber Music’s 2018 Fellows:

I can’t express how lovely and rejuvenating this has been. The lessons, fellow meetings, open rehearsals, and hangs with the pros has been just what I needed and so inspiring. This festival is so special and the people here are not only so knowledgeable, but so kind and willing to hang with us, and answer millions of questions.  Wesley Hornpetrie

These past two weeks have been some of the most wonderful days of my life. I left being truly excited to play my instrument, to work hard, and to expand my horizons. Because of you amazing people, I’m going into grad school and beyond with a mentality of positivity, confidence, and creativity.    Alexander McLaughlin
