Silkroad's Global Musician Workshop (GMW) is a performance-focused experience begun in 2015 and serving musicians of all backgrounds, styles, and instruments, where we are immersed in multiple musical languages through small ensemble collaborations led by a faculty of master musicians from around the world. Our mission is to foster a community of global-minded musicians for the 21st century and to support the development of the artistic voice of each participant.

Emphasizing new music, social initiatives, and educational partnerships, Silkroad is a globally-minded musical organization founded by cellist Yo-Yo Ma in 1998.

Hosted in partnership with the New England Conservatory and the Silkroad Ensemble, the Global Musician Workshop this week presented a week long special event — including group sessions that teach tunes from around the world, unique topic-based elective classes, play-along jam sessions, panel discussions, and an online performance festival featuring faculty and participants alike.

"Although we’re not able to replicate the performance focus and collaborative ensemble experiences during our online camp, we are still able to share lots of experiences and information over the series of Zoom workshops and classes, as well as make time for small group discussions and jam sessions, where people can share music casually with each other. We’re also going to be putting together one all-camp collaborative video with contributions from all of our participants and faculty!" Director Mike Block this week told The Violin Channel.
