Four distinguished musicians will join the Green Mountain artist faculty for the first time during our 2020 season: violinist Shannon Thomas, violist Caroline Coade, and cellists Alice Yoo and Matthew Zalkind.

Violinist Amanda Stenroos joins the Green Mountain team as Program Manager!

Amanda is a performer, organizer and teacher based in the Pioneer Valley of western Massachusetts. In 2019, she was the Resident Director for the 15th Green Mountain Chamber Music Festival and in 2020, students and faculty will see Amanda in a different role at GMCMF!

On Sunday July 21, 2019, the Emerson String Quartet presented a concert completing and celebrating the 15th season of Green Mountain Chamber Music Festival. The members of the Emerson Quartet have had a significant impact on the experience of our students since the Festival’s founding; each year we have invited members of the group to give master classes.

During our 2019 season, Green Mountain Chamber Music Festival offered a series of four guest master classes to our Emerging Artists. These events were, as always, open to the public and free of charge. All classes took place in the UVM Recital Hall.


The classes—

Violist Paul Neubauer of the Chamber Music Society of Lincoln Center worked with GMCMF students in a chamber music master class.
