Other Residency Opportunities

Enjoying their home at Brandeis University, where they've been on the faculty since 1980, the Lydians also love to share their passion for music and their expertise with others. The LSQ has experience teaching in an impressive range of settings — from university to public schools; classrooms to community centers; summer workshops for amateur musicians to pre-professionals and the conservatory. Each member of the Quartet has a deep commitment to education, so a Lydian mini-residency affords opportunities for interdisciplinary connections, stimulating outreach, and meaningful personal contact.

What do these mini-residencies look like? Tailored to the sponsoring organization’s requests, residencies include a full-length evening concert, around which other activities are centered. Such activities might include

• Masterclass/coaching
• Pre-concert talks
• Lecture demonstrations (may focus on history, biography, composition, etc., geared to targeted audience needs)
• Workshops for student composers
• Outreach offerings, from concerts in schools, retirement communities, and public libraries, to coaching adult amateur musicians, leading a “Music Club” discussion group and more.
