INTERNSHIPS – for Four Pianists
Required assets: FLEXIBILITY and COLLABORATIVE EXPERIENCE
The Castleman Quartet Program has for over 20 years offered a piano intern summer program whereby young artists, employed or working on advanced academic degrees, are in residence at The State University of New York, Fredonia.
The 2020 dates are June 7 to July 26. Piano Interns may attend for seven weeks, the first three weeks, or the last four weeks.
Attendance is tuition-free, and room & board is provided, but the position is unsalaried. Each intern will have a locked practice room with a grand piano for personal practice and afternoon/evening rehearsals. Many works are learned and most will be performed, coached by the string faculty in the quartet sessions.
Applicants for the Fredonia Piano Intern program should send:
» a CV (including contact information)
» a list of all works studied/performed to date, of any size, which collaborate with violin, viola, and/or cello.
» a 15-20 minute DVD or YouTube of movements/excerpts in 3 contrasting styles. At least one should be chamber music; a Sonata is satisfactory.
