Fellowship Quartet Program

July 9 - August 7, 2016

Open to pre-formed string quartets (quintets considered) on the verge of a professional career. 

This highly selective program engages one pre-formed string quartet. The Fellowship Quartet is featured in festival chamber music concerts and coached multiple times per week by members of the String Academy Faculty and Festival Guest Artists. They will rehearse and perform in the fully professional Wintergreen Festival Orchestra. The Fellowship Quartet will also be promoted in a pre-arranged concert tour of Virginia. Members of the Fellowship Quartet receive full tuition, room and board, and a travel stipend. Only quartets with serious intent should apply for this program.
