Adam Summer School 2015

February 2015

The 2015 Adam Summer School is presented by the New Zealand String Quartet and will be held in Nelson from 7th – 15th February 2015. It will provide the opportunity for up to 30 of New Zealand’s best young string players and pianists to commit themselves to eight days of intense chamber music-making under the guidance of the New Zealand String Quartet and pianist Diedre Irons.

Enjoy the balmy setting of mid-summer Nelson and:

  • Benefit from world class coaching from New Zealand’s best chamber musicians
  • Be inspired by an intense period of music-making
  • Work with the best of your peers from throughout New Zealand
  • Participate in daily masterclasses
  • Take advantage of individual instrument teaching with world class New Zealand performers
  • Perform a major chamber music work following a week of in-depth study.

Participants will have one two-hour group coaching session each day.

Opportunities for individual instrument tuition from the tutors have also been built into the daily schedule.

Two public concerts will take place at the conclusion of the school, during which each group will perform.
