Applications are now being accepted for Accent12, CCM’s annual chamber music festival for young artists. Instrumentalists and composers from throughout the country will convene in beautiful CCM Village for this festival, which runs June 10–16, 2012.

Accent12 provides college-age and graduate artists with the opportunity to immerse themselves in the study of chamber music of the past and present through performance, master classes and the opportunity to work with remarkable faculty-artists.

Organized by Artistic Director and violist Dorotea Vismara, Accent12 celebrates 11 years of this exciting and worthwhile immersive experience for blossoming musicians. Each day includes lessons and master classes guided by prominent performing artists, including CCM faculty members Michael Chertock (piano) and Won-Bin Yim (violin); Cincinnati Symphony Orchestra principal cellist Ilya Finkelshteyn; Cincinnati Chamber Orchestra member Dorotea Vismara; and guest artists Emilie-Anne Gendron (violin), Stephanie Griffin (viola) and Michael Haas (cello), members of the ensemble-in-residence, the Momenta Quartet. Indiana University Professor of Composition Claude Baker will lead the festival’s composition seminar.

Composition students will have the opportunity to hear their works performed, meet colleagues from around the country and study with Professor Baker, while instrumentalists will put their study into practice by performing side-by-side with faculty in concert, showcasing works by an array of composers throughout the week.

Applications for Accent12 will be accepted through March 30, or until spaces are filled. Scholarships are available for qualified participants. For more information or to apply for the program, please visit
