High Desert Chamber Music presents a Master Class with members of the Calder Quartet. Presented in partnership with the Oregon chapter of the American String Teachers Association, this event is free and open to the public. Master Classes are beneficial and exciting for all those involved – the student musician receives valuable insight and personalized instruction that they can apply to their studies, and the audience can learn and experience how the master’s advice improved or affected the student’s performance. The quartet regularly conducts master classes at locations including the Colburn School, Oberlin Conservatory, Cleveland Institute of Music, and the Juilliard School.
The students range in age from 9-16 years old, and come from the private teaching studios of Julia Bastuscheck, Andrea Hawkins, Hae-Jin Kim, and Hyun-Jin Kim. They will be performing works by Bruch, Dvorak, Haydn, Mozart, Sarasate, and Schubert.
