Quartetfest (San Francisco)
Del Sol’s unique QuartetFest program is a nationally regarded model for coaching of young string players in chamber music performance. As one of the Bay Area’s premier training workshops offered to serious young musicians, QuartetFest has served hundreds of students, ages 8-18, in the last two decades. The program trains young musicians in the art of the string quartet in an encouraging and energetic environment, and guides them on a creative journey of musical discovery and fun!
This five-day summer workshop is a superb opportunity for intensive rehearsals, coachings, masterclasses (with focus on various dimensions of music making) and performances (both of students and of Del Sol). Students will also engage in composer projects, learn relevant music theory and history, explore the physics of sound, and create a sound collage from samples they collect throughout the week.
