The AMF Collaborative Piano Program is a four-week summer course established with the goal of providing intensive immersion into the world of collaborative arts for advanced pianists.
Led by Dr. Arlene Shrut, the program covers a range of topics including vocal and instrumental repertoire, score study, interpretation, and orchestral reductions for operatic repertoire and instrumental concerti. Vocally-focused collaborative pianists will also be guided in playing recitatives, coaching, cuing, and singing while playing.
The program offers three skill-building focused seminars per week plus two private lessons for all student participants centering on repertoire acquisition and interpretation. Lesson requests with Piano Institute and Seminar ’s solo piano faculty members may be accommodated depending on availability.
Using the vibrant festival environment as a backdrop, the program offers unprecedented collaborative performance opportunities including instrumental, vocal, and contemporary works. The program will culminate in a collaborative piano recital.
