We plan to bring back as many ensembles as possible in 2021-22. Masks will be required; some ensembles may require vaccination. Contact us for details and visit our COVID-19 page for schoolwide information.

Chamber Music Ensembles

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. We welcome grade school children (ages 8+), teens, and adults.

Chamber groups will be coached by members of our piano and string faculty. Each ensemble will be created by matching the level, age, and skill of the musicians who perform a successful audition, and scheduled based on the availability of coaches and participants.

Appropriate COVID-19 protocols will be followed in the building at all times.
