Having always chosen to focus on exchange and transmission, the Debussy String Quartet animates each year various courses and workshops for professional and amateur musicians. Imagined in collaboration with the major musical actors of the territory (conservatories, universities, training centers …), these sessions are aimed at all types of musicians wishing to discover or progress in the art of the string quartet, or more usually chamber music.
The Debussy String Quartet has been part of the ProQuartet network (European Chamber Music Center) for many years, which, since 1987, has accompanied the career of young musical ensembles. Each year, the training program is aimed at groups from all over the world, thus attesting to the association’s international influence. In a desire to promote professional integration, concerts, residences, awareness-raising actions and international exchanges can be offered to registered ensembles.
Alongside ProQuartet’s professional training program, the association offers chamber music opportunities for amateur musicians of all ages and all levels, playing strings, winds and keyboards. These activities allow amateur musicians to work with chamber music professionals during workshops, weekends and customised classes.
For the 2023-2024 season, the Debussy String Quartet will conduct a ProQuartet chamber music course on February 10 and 11, 2024 at the Lumière Lyon 2 University. A weekend of lessons which will be punctuated by concert. On the program for this weekend of chamber music:
• 4 hours of course on a chosen piece’s extract
• Invitation to the rehearsal or to the concert of the Debussy String Quartet
