World Music Division

Image Picker for Section 0

The World Music division provides the opportunity for students to learn cross over

collabration from world-class musicians. By expanding their performing styles and

repertoire, students can widen their performing and teaching career opportunities. Each

student will be assigned to a cross over chamber group of various combinations,

focusing on the repertoire composed by internationally known composers over the past

20 years. They will be coached by musicians from the 6-Wire and Yo Yo Ma’s Silk Road

Project, in preparation for a public chamber concert.

Our coaching faculty include: Erhu masters Cathy Yang and Jun Chu; Pipa masters Hong

Zhou and Jin Yang; violinist Xiang Gao; cellist Bo Li; pianist Matthew Brower; and

percussionist Ben Goldman.

Each student will have multiple private lessons with our world-class faculty. They can

also attend different master classes and lectures by faculty or visiting artists every day

during the festival. In addition, a different variety of concerts are held each day, providing

more learning opportunities for students. MPF holds the Young Artist Solo Competition

in which students are encouraged to participate but not required. Students from the World

Music Division can choose works from its traditional repertoire for the instrument.

Professors from China will also help the students to prepare the traditional works for the

competition. The winners will receive award certificates and the opportunity to

perform in the solo concerts.
