Registration is now open for the Montana Chamber Music Workshop, which is set for June 20-27 on the Montana State University campus.

The workshop, which attracts nearly 100 chamber music players from all over the United States, Europe and Canada, is sponsored by the MSU music department and is now in its 39th year. Musicians play in different chamber music groups each day during the workshop and are assigned one in-depth assignment for the week. Also included are daily music seminars offered by the workshop's resident coaches and performance forums that allow each group to present an excerpt of the day's music.

Workshop faculty include the Hyperion String Quartet, a professional ensemble based in upstate New York; the Gallatin Woodwind Quintet, a group based at MSU; several Bozeman musicians including violinist Michael Certalic, cellist Rebecca Hartka and percussionist Jeffery Vick; violist Margaret Miller from Colorado; and Phyllis Louke, a flutist and composer from Oregon.

The workshop is designed for amateur intermediate and advanced strings, woodwinds, brass and piano players. Pre-formed ensembles, residents of the Gallatin Valley and college-aged students are encouraged to apply. Tuition is $400 for people whose applications are postmarked by March 1 and $450 for those whose applications are postmarked by April 1.
