Masterclass with Adam Holzman

Location: 2526 Monroe St, Madison, WI 53711, USA



MCGS will be sponsoring a FREE masterclass with Mr. Holzman at the Monroe Street Arts Center on Saturday, April 15th from 6-9! This will be free for MCGS members who wish to perform and get feedback from a master, as well as those who just want to come and watch. So finish up those taxes early and make sure to come!


If you've never been to a masterclass before, they are a unique look into the discipline and interpretive artistry behind a virtuoso's process. If you'd like to perform a piece and get some truly world-class tips to help you improve, this is your chance. If you'd just like to attend and soak it all in, you're sure to walk away with new insights and inspiration.


If you're interested in playing a piece for this event, please contact Christopher Allen (crallen1@madisoncollege.edu) to make sure you're on the schedule. We're actively looking for players and students to perform, so please sign up and take advantage of this rare offering of a free session with a master. No reservation required to simply attend and audit. Donations are appreciated, as always, to allow us to continue to offer events like these.
