Coaching Session for Chamber Musicians

May 25, 2021

Due to COVID-19 restrictions, in lieu of the traditional Long Island String Festival Association Chamber Music Festival, members of the Riverhead High School Chamber Orchestra were treated to a special virtual workshop on May 21 with professional musicians.

During the interactive Zoom session, members of the Cali Chamber Players provided a virtual presentation and a performance of Franz Schubert’s “Cello Quintet.” The performance was followed by a coaching session with Ilmar Gavilán, first violinist of the Cali Chamber Players. Gavilán provided the student-musicians with insightful tips and techniques.
