The 2020 St. Lawrence String Quartet Summer Chamber Music ZOOM-inar!

Jun 19 2020
In the two decades of our Summer Seminar and three decades of the SLSQ, we have never had a year quite like this one, and we know that goes for everyone reading this as well. Although we cannot gather for the usual ten days of music making on the Stanford campus, we are holding a handful of online events to mark what would have been this year's Seminar.
  • Sunday, June 21 at 11 AM PDT - Join us for an opening event with special guest Simon Rowland-Jones, editor of the Urtext Peters Edition of the Haydn String Quartets. 
  • Tuesday, June 23 at 7 PM PDT - We'll fire up Zoom for a session with Chris Chafe, director of the Center for Computer Research in Music and Acoustics (CCRMA) at Stanford, and Jonathan Berger, professor of composition, music theory, and cognition at CCRMA. They'll take us through a demo of JackTrip, cutting edge technology that allows for remote musical collaborations - something that's been on our minds recently!
  • Thursday, June 25 at 7 PM PDT - We finish off the week with a digital Haydn Discovery event in collaboration with the San Francisco-based chamber music series, Noe Music. Join the SLSQ for an evening dedicated to Haydn's Op. 20, No. 3. We'll lead a lively discussion with musical examples from our video performance of this work in Bing Concert Hall.
To attend these events, please RSVP.
