Decoda | Skidmore Chamber Music Institute

The Decoda | Skidmore Chamber Music Institute is a 2 week summer intensive for young musicians offering multiple performance opportunities and meaningful community engagement. Under the guidance of Decoda artists, students will learn how to fully engage their audiences and communities through scripted interactive chamber music performances while improving their own performance and public speaking skills. Program participants will live on the beautiful campus of Skidmore College and will rehearse and perform at the state of the art Arthur Zankel Music Center.
