Lyra Summer Music launched its first workshop in Randolph, Vermont in the summer of 2010, which was hosted jointly by Chandler Center for the Arts and Vermont Technical College. Nine students from New York City and Vermont spent two weeks working intensely with a faculty of four teachers, and two guest artists. In addition to daily instruction, music classes, ensemble work, and hours of supervised practice, the students performed at Bethany Church, the Senior Center in Randolph, and Chandler Music Hall. Faculty, students, parents, and locals of Randolph witnessed the outstanding progress of the participants. This year, Lyra will be accepting a maximum of thirty students. Students of all ages and levels who play piano, violin, viola, cello and double bass are invited to participate. Curriculum includes, private lessons, chamber ensembles and coaching, master classes with distinguished guest artists, group classes (i.e music theory, instrumental literature, ear-training, etc.), and supervised practice time. Lyra Summer Music will hold faculty concerts, guest artist performances, and student concerts at Chandler. Students interested in enrolling in the intensive music workshop can find all the necessary information at www.lyrasummermusic.com. Co-director and piano faculty, Mary Prescott is hailed as a pianist with “great sensitivity… good sense of line, drama, and poetry.” An ambitious pianist and an accomplished educator, she holds a BM in piano performance from the University of Minnesota and a MM in piano performance from the Manhattan School of Music. Mary Prescott has run a successful private studio for over 10 years.

Redhage has performed in such venues as Carnegie Hall, Lincoln Center, Radio City Music Hall, BAM Opera House and the Whitney Museum.
