Head to the mountains for a morning seminar on one of the most powerful symphonies of all time with Artistic Director Erin Freeman. Spend your afternoon inspired by the talented Academy string students and grab a bite and a pint off Route 151. Then see what happens to our Academy students when they grow up – in concert! (Hint: They become top-notch professional musicians.)
