Artistic Encounters

Check back soon for 2018 updates!

Series sponsored by Barbara and Paul Goodman 

As part of our mission to foster artistic excellence among young, emerging ensembles, Festival artists host public coachings for Shouse Institute fellows. Attend all five encounters with a punch card, or attend only one and bring four friends along to use up all your punches. Punch cards are free with a subscription and are $20 for single-ticket holders.

Musical Chairs 

Philip Setzer, Friction Quartet, Omer Quartet, Trio Honoré

Musical Chairs comes from the imagination of Shouse Institute Director Philip Setzer. Shouse groups are deconstructed and reassembled as fellows are challenged to perform toegher for the first time. Each group will include one special member and coach - Setzer himself.

Brahms: Piano Quintet in F minor, Op. 34
     Allegro non troppo

Shostakovich: String Quartet No. 8 in C minor, Op. 110
     Allegro molto
