[ Free And Open To The Public ]

Chamber Music Masterclasses

During July and August, the Festival presents Masterclasses featuring Fellows taking guidance from Norfolk Faculty and Artists in an intimate setting in the Music Shed. This is a wonderful opportunity to get inside the notes and understand how artistic interpretation is created.

Fellows of the Festival will perform their repertoire while members of the public are welcome to come and watch. No tickets are required. And if you are not able to make it, the masterclasses will be streamed live.
