Fellowship String Quartet

2024 Fellowship String Quartet:

Music in the Vineyards festival is now accepting applications through January 30, 2024, for our three week Fellowship String Quartet program. One aspiring string quartet will be chosen to join our roster of 40 professional musicians—including the Miró, Pacifica and Isidore Quartets for 2024—for three weeks of intensive mentoring and performance opportunities. In addition to rehearsing and performing their own repertoire, the 2024 Fellowship Quartet will have opportunities to perform alongside MITV artists on our main festival concert series. 

We are looking for recommendations from distinguished musicians and chamber music educators to identify ensembles that are on a professional trajectory and would benefit from this opportunity. Last summer, the 2023 Fellowship Quartet was the Lirios Quartet, currently enrolled at the University of Colorado/Boulder with the Takács Quartet.
Fellowship Dates: The quartet will be in residence July 29 – August 19, 2024.

The Fellowship Includes:

  • All (domestic) travel expenses
  • Housing and local transportation
  • $400 weekly stipend, per member
  • Performance opportunities with festival musicians and ensembles
  • Performance opportunities in the greater Napa community
  • Intensive ensemble coaching and rehearsals
  • Special emphasis on presentation skills and designing outreach programs for any audience

Audition Requirements:

  • A video consisting of two contrasting movements of any length, uploaded via our Google Drive Application Form
  • A short (1-3 minute) spoken introduction from each member that includes a brief personal bio and any distinctive or unique features about your ensemble that would make you suitable for this Fellowship
  • A comprehensive quartet repertoire list

When you donate to Music in the Vineyards, you ensure that the Festival will continue to enrich people’s lives through the power of music.
