Share your love of music by playing in a chamber music ensemble! Our experienced faculty coaches provide the guidance musicians need for intensive study of the chamber music repertoire. Ensembles comprise various combinations of instruments including piano, woodwinds, and strings. Groups range in size from duos to sextets.
Chamber Music for Adults
Instrumentalists are placed in groups with other musicians of a similar current playing level. Pre-formed ensembles are also welcome! Each weekly session includes one hour of coaching with the group’s faculty coach and one hour of rehearsal. Most Chamber Music groups rehearse on Sunday, Monday, and Thursday evenings. Other days and times are available by request. A placement session with Diane Taublieb, our chamber music coordinator, is required for new participants. The fall and spring semesters each culminate in a performance in Ann Goodman Recital Hall. During the summer, we offer a mini-session of six rehearsals over three weeks.
14 weeks: $510 (Fall and Spring)
3 weeks, 2x per week: $220 (Summer)

Chamber Music for Young People
Instrumentalists with strong technical ability on their instrument have the opportunity to play and perform together in small chamber combinations. Students participating in chamber music are also required to have strong sight-reading skills. Chamber groups are formed in the beginning of the academic year, though placement during the year is also possible. Groups may be selected to perform in ChamberFest in Merkin Concert Hall.
