MUSIC FESTIVAL &
YOUNG ARTIST PROGRAM

Stringwood Summer Chamber Music is an intensive summer program founded in 2000 by the Artaria String Quartet for advanced string players. In step with the rich musical traditions of America’s finest chamber music centers, Stringwood provides an opportunity for in-depth study and mentoring in the wooded ecosystem of southeast Minnesota.
The Artaria String Quartet (ASQ) is devoted to fostering a life-long participation in and appreciation of chamber music. In addition to the ASQ as full time faculty, internationally renowned guest artists are on campus each summer for masterclasses, lessons, and performances. Stringwood alumni, graduates of elite college chamber music programs, return each summer to practice and perform, collaborate with Artaria and to serve as teaching assistants and counselors.
