What is a marathon concert? It’s an opportunity to share through performance everything we — the faculty and the young musicians — have taught each other over nine days together. There will be chamber music, and Michael Stern will conduct works of Brahms and Sibelius. And there will be surprises! Because we don’t know what we might discover together.
