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-focussed collaborative pianists will also be guided in playing recitatives, coaching, cuing, and singing while playing.
Using the vibrant festival environment as a backdrop, the program offers unprecedented collaborative performance opportunities including instrumental, vocal, and contemporary works.
In addition to private lessons and seminars offered by the program, students receive weekly private lessons from AMF Piano Institute and Seminar’s solo piano faculty members.
