The Summer Music Academy
The Guarneri Hall Summer Music Academy is an intensive training program for serious young string players taught by world class faculty. The Academy is a rigorous, full-day program that runs for three weeks, Monday through Friday, from July 12 (orientation) through July 31, 2020. Due to the pandemic, the 2020 program will be offered online rather than in person. Chicago violinist and gifted pedagogue Addison Teng, who serves on the faculties of the Music Institute of Chicago and DePaul University, has been tapped to lead the new program as Academy Director.
Miriam Fried has been recognized for years as one of the world’s preeminent violinists. A consummate musician—equally accomplished as recitalist, concerto soloist or chamber musician—she has been heralded for her “fiery intensity and emotional depth” (Musical America) as well as for her technical mastery. Fried has played with virtually every major orchestra in the United States and Europe and has been a frequent guest with the principal orchestras of Boston, Chicago, Cleveland, New York, Philadelphia, and Pittsburgh, as well as with the Israel Philharmonic, the London Symphony, the Royal Philharmonic, and the Vienna Symphony.
Most live performances are livestreamed as well. Check the individual event pages for details.
