Manhattan School of Music will be hosting the 6th Annual Robert Mann String Quartet Institute to take place Wednesday, January 4 through Sunday, January 8, 2017. Up to six of North America’s most promising young string quartets and special guests, personally chosen by Mr. Mann, will take part in a series of master classes to be taught by Robert Mann. In addition, each quartet will receive intensive coachings, working with a faculty that includes David Geber, Nicholas Mann, members of the American String Quartet, and Kazuhide Isomura of the Tokyo String Quartet, Samuel Rhodes and Mark Steinberg. On Sunday, a public performance at Manhattan School of Music will showcase the week's accomplishments of all of the quartets. A screening of Speak The Music: Robert Mann and the Mysteries of Chamber Music by Academy Award winning director Allan Miller will be shown Friday evening.
