The Great Lakes Chamber Music Festival brings together the world’s finest musicians to offer extraordinary musical performances and experiences. Through performance and education, they preserve the art of chamber music for generations to come. The Catherine Filene Shouse Chamber Music Institute, led by violinist Philip Setzer of the Emerson String Quartet, provides a platform for emerging professional ensembles. Artistic Encounters are public coachings for Shouse Institute fellows in a setting similar to a masterclass. You are invited to attend these Artistic Encounters to get a behind-the-scenes look at what it takes to be a professional musician.
For more than four decades, the Emerson String Quartet has maintained its status as one of the world’s premier chamber music ensembles. The Quartet has made more than 30 acclaimed recordings, and has been honored with nine GRAMMYs® (including two for Best Classical Album), three Gramophone Awards, the Avery Fisher Prize, and Musical America’s “Ensemble of the Year” award. The Quartet collaborates with some of today’s most esteemed composers to premiere new works, keeping the string quartet form alive and relevant.
