Quartet Strings

Quartet Strings at the Music Institute of Chicago Adult Studies Program

Quartet Strings is a string ensemble program for adults who want music making to be a part of their lives.  The group is a non-performing ensemble that plays string quartet literature (as a string orchestra), and string orchestra literature including Haydn, Mozart, Beethoven, Schubert, and others. 

 

The program is for all adults who have enough skill on their instruments to contribute to a string orchestra at an intermediate level. Students should be able to play their instrument in tune, create a reasonably good sound, and have a reasonable degree of sight reading ability and overall musicianship.

 

The repertoire selected will be chosen by the Conductor prior to each semester which is suitable for the ensemble, and compatible with existing artistic and educational goals.

 

Quartet Strings rehearses on Wednesdays from 1:00 - 3:00 pm in Winnetka, led by Lawrence Eckerling.

 

 

 

Spring classes and ensembles begin on Wednesday, January 31, 2018.

Summer classes and ensembles begin on Wednesday June 13, 2018.
