MYCO FALL 2017

September 17-December 17, 2017

Schedule for Fall 2017

MYCO's chamber music and chamber orchestra rehearsals will take place on Sunday afternoons between September 17 and December 17, 2017  at UNC Chapel Hill's campus.  Please see the schedule at the bottom of this page for week-by-week details. 

Weekly chamber rehearsals will be from 12:15 to 2:15, and 4:15-6:15. Chamber orchestra rehearsals, master classes, and other group activities for all students will generally be held from 2:30-4:00.

Weekly activities

Every chamber music group will meet for two hours each Sunday afternoon: one hour of coaching with their regular coach, and one hour of rehearsal. The exciting roster of coaches includes: Eric Pritchard, Nicholas DiEugenio, Hsiao-Mei Ku, Gabriel Richard, Jonathan Bagg, Grace Anderson, Teddy Robie, and Mimi Solomon. MYCO founder Yoram Youngerman will also be returning from Israel for a residency for two weeks in November. He will conduct the chamber orchestra and will also coach every group.

All string players will participate in a chamber orchestra project led by Artistic Director Nicholas DiEugenio and Artistic Director and MYCO founder Yoram Youngerman. During orchestra rehearsals, pianists will participate in activities based upon the chamber orchestra project including score study, learning about the background of the pieces, writing program notes, and playing 2-hand and 4-hand music inspired by the semester's chamber orchestra works.

Students will have the opportunity to perform in master classes with several guest artists including cellist Gwen Krosnick, pianist Keiko Sekino, and cellist Emanuel Gruber.

The weekly schedule will be supplemented with  improvisation classes,  score reading classes for pianists, discussions about performance comportment, and professional chamber music performances.

New Students

We welcome new intermediate and advanced string players and pianists age 10-18 to audition for MYCO before the beginning of each semester as well as before the summer workshop.

For new students: the audition date for the fall semester is August 20, 2017. Please register, and you will be contacted with an audition time and place. Please contact MYCO's registrar at myco.registrar@gmail.com if you have any questions.
