Announcing a Chamber Music Workshop & Retreat With the Alexander String Quartet
September 7-10, 2017
Ratna Ling Retreat Center (Sonoma County, CA)
The Apollo Academy for Health and Humanism
The Apollo Academy for Health and Humanism has put together a unique weekend: A chamber music intensive (for musicians and non-playing participants), melded with a series of health-focused offerings (yoga, meditation, healthy food preparation, preventive medicine), writing sessions and exploration of the environment — all in the beautiful natural setting of Ratna Ling Retreat Center.
Pre-formed quartets have an opportunity to be coached by members of the ASQ, and playing participants who are not part of a pre-formed quartet will have a chance to engage in chamber music reading sessions with members of the Quartet and Apollo Academy professional musical staff.
During evening “dinner concerts” the ASQ will team up with esteemed composer, pianist and music historian Robert Greenberg to provide insight into the string quartet masterpieces of these three Viennese composers and their historical period.
