We are pleased to offer a great way to have a mini-Sonata experience - for those who can't take a full week off from work or family! These long weekends (Thursday PM through Monday AM) have a smaller number of participants, the possibility of a private or double room, more practice time, participation in master classes without the pressure of a final concert, all culminating with a Duet/Solo Bash or optional solo repertoire on Sunday late afternoon. These weekends were designed to supplement your regular Sonata experience and to facilitate more Sonata reunions. However, if this is to be your introduction to the Sonata camp, we'd welcome you and hope that you'll join us for a longer stay again in the future.
Please come prepared with a duet (1 piano/4 hands or 2 pianos/4 hands). Participants will be working on this music with the faculty during the Sonata Intermezzo Program, if you would like that to be your focus of piano study. One or two monster pieces will also be arranged.
