Nestled in the limestone bluffs and hardwood forests of southeastern Minnesota, Stringwood at the Eagle Bluff Environmental Learning Center sits on 80 acres of natural woodlands overlooking the scenic Root River.
The modern campus facilities are climate controlled and feature a superb indoor rock wall, an air-conditioned dormitory and 2-bedroom suites with private bathrooms, a spacious dining hall with meals prepared from locally sourced ingredients, and spectacular views.
Each chamber ensemble is assigned a personal rehearsal room for the entire 2 weeks. Stringwood Junior Faculty provide private lessons and seminars, manage rehearsals and outdoor adventures, and serve as dorm RA's.
Typical days are spent in personal practice, quartet rehearsals and chamber music coachings, private lessons and masterclasses.
Evenings are reserved for group adventures with skilled Eagle Bluff naturalists, a midweek Artist Faculty Concert, and ping-pong!
Friday through Sunday, students are performing, biking, and socializing.
