Congratulations to all participants of this year’s SVI. It was an inspiring week, and I hope that you will continue to find useful ideas in the weeks and months ahead.

Please send any pictures from the workshop that you would like to share. They will be posted to the ‘Photos 2022’ page.

The Daily-Schedule page page will remain in its original format for your reference. It will remain posted for the next 4 weeks.

Repertoire for this year is listed here. You might consider bringing your own copies of the music being performed to be able to follow the scores.

The building is located on the lakefront campus at 70 Arts Circle Drive, Evanston, IL Please enter by this main door and plan to arrive around 9:00.

Please stop by the table by this entrance to pick up a folder with the Monday schedule, your practice room access card, building map of the practice rooms, and name tag. Please wear your name tag for the first couple of days.

The classes will take place in McClintock Hall. There will be signs posted to direct you.

We will have a welcome meeting at 9:15 in the hall, and the morning class with Professor Kantor will begin at 9:30.

Repertoire choices:

Please consider the repertoire suggestions below as you prepare to attend the SVI. Having several pieces that are already well prepared will give you the flexibility to play different pieces for different teachers.

When you have decided on what you will play while you are here, please email me your list: This information is necessary in preparing the daily schedule.

Repertoire recommendation:
Bring present works (3-4)  that you already know well. The idea is to bring music that you have already learned, not works-in-progress. You will get the most out of the classes by bringing your most prepared works. You may also include orchestra excerpts.


  • concerto
  • sonata with piano
  • virtuoso piece
  • Bach
  • Ysaye
  • caprice – Paganini, Wieniawski, Beriot
  • orchestra excerpts
