Talented young musicians from around the world descended on Holy Cross to attend the selective Chamber Music Institute. This is the second year the College has run the intensive program, which aims to develop chamber music skills and nurture the individual talent of violinists, violists, cellists and pianists. Established in 2014 by Jan Müller-Szeraws, artistic director of the program, and fellow Artists-in-Residence Adam Golka and Saul Bitran, the institute brings together young musicians and garners them the opportunity to learn from and perform with internationally renowned faculty at the beautiful facilities at the College. The program, mentored and inspired by Distinguished Professor of Humanities Shirish Korde and Loyola Professor of Music Osvaldo Golijov, has an intensive week-long curriculum culminating with two concerts in Brooks Concert Hall.
