Center Stage Strings was founded by renowned violinist and U-M Professor Danielle Belen to develop the talents of serious young classical music students in the areas of solo and chamber music performance. The natural beauty of the campus surroundings and the music intertwine in this four-week long institute to create a unique summer experience.
The young musicians chosen to participate will have a unique opportunity to focus purely on developing their talents without the distractions of normal, everyday life. An intense practice, lessons and coaching schedule is balanced with chamber music reading, socializing and recreational activities. Kayaking, hiking and trips to vibrant downtown Ann Arbor are just a few of the many fun activities available to the students. There is also a focus on our students becoming “Complete Musicians”, equipped with the skills needed for a professional musician today. These range from public speaking and stage presence to networking and even pedagogy.
In addition to the student-driven coursework of Center Stage Strings, there are also Guest Artist Recitals, Faculty Concerts and Masterclasses presented by world class artists and teachers.
