July 14-26, 2016
with Aaron Berofsky
The intensive study program in Violin includes private lessons with Aaron Berofsky in addition to master classes and seminars with the other faculty of the Amalfi Coast Music Festival, including members of the renowned Fine Arts Quartet.
Students may also have the opportunity to play in chamber ensembles with students in the winds and piano programs, and to be coached by various faculty artists.
Students are encouraged to perform as soloists and/ or ensemble artists in Institute concerts. They will also attend the daily concerts that make up the Music Festival, and partake in the wide range of activities offered to become better acquainted with, and inspired by, Italian culture as they visit the landmarks of the area.
We are proud to announce the selection of our 2016 Young Artist Series performers. Please click here to learn more about these talented young musicians.
We are also happy to welcome a group of Young Professionals serving as Amalfi Fellows and on our Festival Staff. Please click here to learn more.
A typical day will include a morning lesson or coaching and an afternoon rehearsal. On a major excursion day (such as Capri or Pompeii), this schedule is adjusted. The goal is to be flexible and find as much time for music-making as possible while providing the opportunity to see some of the important cultural sites in the area.
Everyone enjoys the after-lunch siesta break (“riposo”) for time to relax or socialize on the beach. Late afternoon hours can also be used for organized sight-reading. There are optional activities including masterclasses, in-house participant recitals, lectures, etc. While there is a festival concert each evening, many participants also choose to use evening hours to free-lance.
Dinner is usually at 7:30 pm and festival concerts are presented on the Mediterranean schedule at 9 pm. Participants have the option to take the festival bus to out-of-town performances on selected days, where the meal plan dinner is scheduled at a local restaurant.
