Why Chamber Music?
Chamber music provides students of all ages with the opportunity to enhance their performance skills and expand their musical insight and awareness through coaching sessions. The faculty coach’s role is to be a musical guidance counselor/facilitator.
The Conservatory Chamber Music Program objectives:
- Reading a musical score: analyzing and evaluating
- Preparing the individual musical parts and learning non-verbal techniques of communication
- Active learning and performing
This program is for students of all ages who have had one or more years of private instruction and is open to students who study privately with the Conservatory faculty as well as with outside teachers. Participants will be grouped in ensembles according to their skill level.
The program takes place in both fall and spring semesters, and consists of eight, 45-minute coaching sessions with a faculty coach each semester for vocal and instrumental ensembles.
Spring 2019 Coaching Dates
Fridays and Saturdays from March 1–May 11, though exceptions are made when needed.
The Spring Chamber Music Program culminates in the annual Conservatory Chamber Music Festival on May 11, 2019 with the student showcase concerts.
