What is it?? Chamber music in three words is “conductorless small ensemble.” It is what lies at the heart of a rock band, a jazz combo and a string quartet, and the one consistent factor is teamwork. Chamber musicians are honing skills including knowing when to lead and when to listen, effective communication and problem solving collaboratively. The power of chamber music comes from the process of reaching mutual understanding and respect while working to bring independent voices together towards a common goal.
What our students Experience
- STUDIO CLASS: Every week, ensembles will participate in a collaborative class that will cover concepts such as intonation, balance and ensemble, rehearsal techniques, and score reading.
- VISITING GUEST ARTISTS: Throughout the year, guest artists visit to provide artistic inspiration and expose students to the possibilities in music.
- INDEPENDENT REHEARSAL: Time is blocked off for each ensemble to rehearse independently using guidelines set during the studio class.
- PERFORMANCE and COMMUNITY OUTREACH: All ensembles will perform throughout the community and on the final Celebration Showcase.
