Chamber music—small ensembles performing with one person to a part and without a conductor—comprises some of the most challenging, rewarding, and memorable musical experiences a student will have. Chamber music study develops leadership and interpersonal skills, encourages critical thinking, and challenges students to incorporate soloistic playing in an ensemble setting. For all students, chamber music opens up new possibilities for advancement, enjoyment, and the opportunity to play with friends.
The Concord Conservatory of Music chamber music program provides weekly instruction for intermediate to advanced strings, winds, and piano players. The program consists of weekly coachings, guest master classes, special events, and performances. Groups are determined by age, ability, and instrumentation.
Students will be placed in an ensemble following the placement audition videos. Audition videos are due by June 10. Private study at the CCM is not a prerequisite for acceptance. Before placement, students will submit their schedules, and the coordinator will place them with a group and coach and identify coaching and rehearsal times. Ensembles will meet weekly on Thursday afternoons, or evenings. Submission Form.
All students accepted into the program must make a commitment for the entire school year and continue to study privately on their instruments.
The program consists of coaching sessions, plus performances and workshop opportunities.
