Adult Summer Chamber Music Intensive

Tuesday, August 6 - Sunday, Aug 11

Space is limited! Apply by May 15th

If you are pining away to spend some time In Prince Edward County, play chamber music, relax at Sandbanks Provincial Park, tour the County vineyards, revisit your beloved stomping grounds, MPM is launching our first adult program concurrently with the third week of our student program. Adult participants will have the opportunity to join in the magic and community of making music at MPM; however, adult participants will sleep off-campus and must arrange their own housing. There are many lovely housing options in The County, but they fill up quickly, so it is best to apply soon! The main organizing force behind the adult program is Adrian Fung, founding cellist of the critically acclaimed  Afiara Quartet, and recognized as one of Musical America’s 30 Innovators of the Year!
