Sartory String Quartet Institute: July 10-14

Register Now

Join us for the 2023 Sartory String Quartet Institute! Students audition for this 5-day Institute and are placed in chamber ensembles with other students of similar age and proficiency. All ensembles receive daily coachings in preparation for a recital performance at the end of the week. In addition to these small ensembles, students play together in a chamber orchestra and experience what it’s like to perform in a larger group without a conductor. The institute will conclude with two final performances: at MacPhail on Friday, July 14 at 2:00pm, and at the Mill City Museum on Saturday, July 15 at 11:00am.

In order to attend the camp, all students must audition through recorded video auditions and be accepted into the camp. Please record three audition requirements: one three-octave scale, one repertoire piece, and the excerpts listed below. All applicants should prepare the first three excerpts from the PDFs below:

Cello (page 1 of 2)

Cello (page 2 of 2)

Viola excerpts

Violin excerpts

The fourth excerpt (Shostakovich) is optional. You and your teacher can determine whether you’d like to include the extra excerpt to demonstrate additional skills.

Please record all three audition requirements (scale, piece and excerpts) in three separate files. Please upload your videos as unlisted on YouTube and then complete the student information form:

Students must submit audition video by April 30. Students may register for camp only after receiving acceptance letter.
