Finally, the Contemporary Performance Institute (a new program for talented young students) will allow them to work intensively on challenging 20th and 21st century music – from landmarks of the repertoire to newly composed works, working alonside a staff of the very top musicians in the country, Learn more about the Composers Conference, Chamber Music Workshops, and Contemporary Performance Institute.
