Join us at the Artaria Adult Chamber Music Retreat for a gratifying weekend of playing amidst the natural beauty of southeast Minnesota. 


The Eagle Bluff Environmental Learning Center 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 groups of strings; strings and piano; and strings and winds to lodge and gain inspiration. The campus is located in the Driftless region near Lanesboro, which is rich in natural resources and cultural history, unique in its limestone karst geology and enchanting beauty. 


The 2023 Adult Retreat weekend features a well-balanced schedule of individual group sessions with each member of Artaria, a large group side-by-side reading of the Finzi "Eclogue"with acclaimed solo pianist, John Jensen, a spirited "what does the score say?" seminar, a low-impact naturalist guided walk through karst forest, and chef inspired meals.  


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 Retreat at the Eagle Bluff Environmental Learning Center annually since 2000, and invites you and your fellow group members to join us there this year!
