Chamber Music Ensembles

OVERVIEW

Open to all middle and high school students. Chamber ensembles have 3-5 members and perform music without a conductor. Students immerse themselves in the rich repertoire written for strings and piano with professional chamber coaches, who guide the students in building skills such as group pulse, communication, the development of a blended ensemble sound, and creating an emotionally expressive performance. Students form strong musical friendships and learn about the wonderfully diverse and beautiful music written for chamber ensembles. The semester of study will culminate in a public performance on George Mason University’s Fairfax campus.
