SEPTEMBER 27-29, 2024

Come to the Artaria Adult Players Workshop for a splendid weekend of chamber music playing in scenic southeast Minnesota. 


The workshop takes place at the Eagle Bluff Environmental Learning Center which is located on over 250 acres of restored prairie and mixed hardwood forest surrounded by hundreds of acres of state forest land, the perfect setting for pre-formed quartets and quintets of strings; strings and piano; and strings and winds to lodge and gain inspiration. The campus is located in the Driftless region near Lanesboro, rich in natural resources and cultural history, unique in its limestone karst geology and enchanting beauty. 


The 2024 Adult Workshop weekend features a well-balanced schedule of individual group sessions with each member of Artaria, an interactive score-study seminar, a naturalist guided walk through fall foliage, and in-town adventures.  


On Saturday evening, Artaria gives a stand-up performance at Lanesboro's destination "Sylvan Brewery" where you can sample a flight, and on Sunday afternoon, participant groups enjoy performing for each other "on the Hill".


The Artaria String Quartet has hosted the Adult Workshop at the Eagle Bluff Environmental Learning Center annually since 2000 and we invite your group to join us there this year!

Tuition per Participant: $225

"The most positive aspect of the retreat was the variety of advice we received, and the total engagement from all of you in the process. I appreciate the enthusiasm which radiated from every one of you." 

“Another outstanding chamber music retreat with Artaria!


In addition to your exceptional technical and musical expertise you offer, each session is additionally enhanced by the contagious enthusiasm, joy, and passion each member brings to his/her coaching.


Wonderful retreat!"
