Residency at Avaloch Farm Music Institute

Avaloch Farm Music Institute provides a unique opportunity for chamber music and jazz ensembles at any stage of development, to have the time and space to work intensively on repertoire, prepare for recordings, concerts or competitions, work with composers on commissions, and forge or reconnect to a group musical identity. The violinists of the Sebastians will be working on projects for the rest of the season, including our innovating program of Bach’s sonatas and partitas for solo violin.
