The Artaria String Quartet invites you to bring a pre-formed group of three to six players to our annual retreat where you will enjoy a weekend of comaraderie with other adult chamber musicians in the beautiful setting of historic Lanesboro, MN. Artaria members are master teachers and performers who specialize in nurturing confidence in personal playing and the exchange of ideas in group rehearsals. A side by side reading session, an Artaria performance at the lovely Inn of the Sacred Clay, and a naturalist guided walk through karst forest will encourage your creativity and interpersonal skills to implement in a low-impact participant performance.


​Sign up now!
