This fall, expand your musical knowledge by playing in a chamber music ensemble!

For centuries, small groups of amateur and professional musicians have gathered together to perform classical music in intimate settings. Different from playing solo or in a large orchestra, creating music in a chamber music trio or quartet is a wonderful way to explore, rehearse, create and perform new and exciting chamber repertoire. It also helps students improve intonation, phrasing, dynamics and ensemble playing techniques.

Are you interested in exploring the art of chamber music and making new friends at the same time? Consider joining the Musical Chairs Chamber Ensemble. Led by Early Music Specialist Tatiana Friesen, this class will have you playing diverse chamber repertoire with 3-4 of your peers. Register now for the Fall Session, which begins on October 15!

If you are interested in a more intimate setting the Chamber Music Program might be right for you. This program matches student instrumentalist duos who will then go on to have private, duo coachings with our Chamber music specialist, Madeline Hildebrand. Contact Student Services if you would like to more information or if you would like to be added to the Chamber Music Program Interest List!

So this fall, take your music out of the practice room and bring it into a chamber music class. Once you have tried this art form for yourself, we know you will be hooked!
