Chamber Music Ensembles (Mixed Instruments)
Performing in a chamber music ensemble is one of the most rewarding and enjoyable experiences for a musician. Students expand their overall musicianship, technique, and performance skills. In the past, we have programmed chamber music repertoire such as Beethoven string quartets, Haydn string trios, Dvorak piano trios, Ibert woodwind trios, and Mozart piano quartets. Chamber music is open to all instrumentalists: strings, woodwinds, brass, piano, and classical guitar. We also welcome musicians of all ages.
Chamber groups will be coached by a member of our piano, string, or wind/brass faculty. The ensemble coordinator will arrange the weekly coachings based on the schedules of the coaches and participants. The semester includes eleven coachings, two master classes, and a final performance. Some ensembles take advantage of opportunities to play in the community as well.
Chamber ensembles are created based on matching the level, age, and skill of the musicians who perform a successful audition.
