Székely/Rolston Young Musicians Program

Robert Kapilow with Székely/Rolston Young Musicians

Robert Kapilow coaches Székely/Rolston Young Musicians artists in the Bentley Chamber Music Studio. 

Launched in 2010, the Székely/Rolston Young Musicians Program was created through a partnership between the Rolston and the Székely families. This initiative inspires and celebrates the next generation of great chamber musicians by creating a special, welcoming and affirming experience for young chamber ensembles as part of the Banff International String Quartet Competition. 

This year, we welcome the Travelling Quartet and Sakata/Kim Duo from The Phil and Eli Taylor Performance Academy for Young Artists at the Royal Conservatory of Music in Toronto, the Kolden Quartet from the Vancouver Academy of Music, and the Rundle String Quartet from Banff. These promising young musicians will attend BISQC lectures and concerts, receive coaching from some of the leading musicians of our time, and will be heard in performance.  

Banff Centre and the Banff International String Quartet Competition are thrilled to be supporting the next generation of chamber musicians through this wonderful initiative by the Rolston and Székely families. The Travelling Quartet and Sakata/Kim Duo are supported in part by the SOCMI Fund for Excellence of the Royal Conservatory of Music.
