Bravo! was established in 1989 to meet the needs of the growing number of young musicians who choose to spend a portion of each summer focusing on their development as musicians and instrumentalists. Students receive a one-hour private lesson, one technique class and two chamber music coaching sessions weekly.
Bravo!'s raison d'etre remains that of individual development. In addition to performance classes held by faculty, master classes by guest artists—who have included Abbey Simon, Janos Starker, Jorja Fleezanis and Tony Ross—enhance an already exciting environment. Student recitals are held twice each week and are attended by the public. Faculty recitals are presented on Sunday afternoons.
