About Us:

Virtuosi Summer music institute was founded in 2011 by the collaboration of Connecticut Virtuosi Chamber Orchestra & Connecticut lyric opera.

Summer music institute is an intense two week music education program that takes place at Tunxis Community College in Farmington Connecticut during the month of August. The Institute is open to instrumentalists ages 8-18 and young and upcoming opera singers. Our students come from local areas as well as international.

The programs are divided in different divisions based on age and level of playing. Young & advance divisions for instrumentalist and opera program.

We give students many opportunities for learning through our many programs that include individual lessons, chamber music caching, chamber orchestra, opera productions, music theory, art classes (for the young division) and many performances in different locations. Our very dedicated and capable teachers/coaches are alongside students from 9:30 – 4:30 teaching, socializing, and sharing their performance experience with them. This healthy relationship gives students a boost of confidence and it is what makes us so unique.

The performances take place at Tunxis Community College, Cyril & Methodius church in Hartford and the well known Wadsworth Museum of art in Hartford.
