High Desert Chamber Music is proud to present a Master Class featuring Grammy-nominated cellist Peter Wiley. Mr. Wiley is an Avery Fischer Career Grant winner, and was the cellist of the famed chamber groups Beaux Arts Trio and Guarneri Quartet.
Master Classes are beneficial and exciting for all involved – they provide artistic stimulation for the guest artist, the student musician receives valuable insight and customized teaching that they can apply to their studies, and the audience experiences how the master’s advice improved or affected the student’s performance. For students, there is incredible leverage and support created by the situation. Not only are they face to face with a prominent expert, but there is a whole audience rooting for their success!
Performers include Mathis Selden, Kira Wang, Jacob Youn, and Paul Lee, featuring pieces by Haydn, Dvořák, Elgar, and Shostakovich.
This event is presented in partnership with the American String Teachers Association of Oregon, and is free and open to the public.
