Quintet Attacca Faculty
Erica Anderson (oboe), Jennifer Clippert (flute), Barbara Drapcho (Clarinet), Collin Anderson (bassoon), and Jeremiah Frederick (French horn).

Immerse yourself in chamber music for the weekend and develop your craft as a performer, communicator, and musician at the Quintet Attacca Chamber Music Retreat for Adults!

Wind quintets, trios, and quartets will participate in rehearsals, coachings, and master classes with Quintet Attacca, an MIC ensemble in residence and winner of the 2002 Grand Prize of the Fischoff National Chamber Music Competition. The best performances in chamber music come from groups who trust each other and have fun together. Quintet Attacca Chamber Music Retreat for Adults brings it all together!

We welcome flute, oboe, clarinet, bassoon, French horn, recorder, saxophone, trumpet, trombone, and tuba players.

Priority will be given to those who register early. If you would like to be placed with a friend, please indicate that on your registration form.


Three years of private study.
