The 2022 Daponte String Quartet Institute will be held June 18 – 27 at Medomak Retreat Center in Washington, Maine.

The DaPonte String Quartet Institute is an all-scholarship world-class musical workshop, with an extremely narrow focus: teaching advanced string players the delicate art of making the four members of a string quartet act as one. Rehearsal techniques, as well as effective communication for tuning, rhythm, and other performance elements will be studied. This 10-day residential program includes free tuition, room, and board for accepted quartets.

This program is open to pre-formed string quartets of exceptional ability, to a maximum of 20 musicians. Applicants must be at least 18 years of age.
