Join us for WCMW '09!
We welcome pianists and boast a piano faculty member!

The Woodland Chamber Music Workshop is a place where adult amateur musicians of any instrument and all skill levels come together for a weekend of small-ensemble playing and coaching, seminars, chamber orchestra, and fun on the beautiful North Shore of Lake Superior in Northern Minnesota!

The WCMW boasts a fun and supportive atmosphere, and includes strings, winds, brass players, and pianists at all levels of ability.

Luxurious, lakeshore accommodations and meals are included at Surfside on Lake Superior resort in Tofte, Minnesota.

The Gichigami Trio, artist-faculty in residence, give positive and constructive coaching sessions for each ensemble, plus a public concert.

Participate as a pre-formed group or individual. Individuals will be placed with other participants of similar skill and experience - no auditions required.

Check out the Woodland Chamber Music Workshop website, where you can get all of the details, see pictures read feedback from last year's Workshop, be tantalized by the sample menu (food will be prepared by the award-winning executive chef at the Bluefin Grille!), and beautiful accommodations at Surfside, read about the faculty (the Gichigami Trio is artist-faculty in residence), and register.

The Workshop runs in two sessions:

The full session is Tuesday evening June 23rd-Sunday noon June 28th.

The "short" session is Thursday evening June 25th through Sunday noon June 28th.

Space is limited and registration may be limited after June 1st.

A note for my wind and brass friends: I'm considering hiring a wind/brass faculty specialist this year if registrations allow ... so register early!

Please feel free to contact me with questions or for more information.

Thanks, and have a great summer -- hope to see you at WCMW '09!
