The Lake Placid Chamber Music Seminar offers adult string players and pianists the opportunity to play and study the great chamber music literature in New York’s beautiful Adirondack Mountains. Participants work with world-class faculty in a relaxed and supportive atmosphere, focusing on ensemble skills and general musicianship. Players may come as individuals or as part of a pre-formed group. We welcome players of all levels. (See guidelines below.)

Program Information

A typical day includes morning and afternoon coaching sessions plus optional evening activities including sight-reading, master classes, a faculty concert, and participant performances. Coaching sessions will take place at a new location this year – Lake Placid Baptist Church.
