Artistic Encounters

Sponsored by Barbara & Paul Goodman

The Catherine Filene Shouse Chamber Music Institute started in 1996 to provide a platform for emerging professional ensembles. The educational program has launched the careers of many of today’s leading classical ensembles, including eighth blackbird, Pacifica, Jupiter and Ariel Quartets, Axiom Brass, Donald Sinta Quartet, Calidore String Quartet and the Claremont Trio.

As part of our mission to foster artistic excellence among young, emerging ensembles, Festival artists host public coachings for Shouse Institute fellows. You are invited to attend these Artistic Encounters to get a behind-the-scenes look at what it takes to be a professional musician.

Subscribers receive a free entry code to all four of the Artistic Encounters.

Single tickets can be purchased for $5 each.
