Ensembles are open to all ages, abilities and instruments.
One hour sessions (Fridays 4-7 pm) begin March 15th, 2019 for eight weeks. 

PCM offers students the opportunity to be placed in any form of chamber music group, from duos to octets, in either mixed instrument groups or traditional instrumental combinations. Students are placed in these groups based on interest and ability, and are matched with a faculty coach.

Chamber ensembles rehearse for one hour sessions on Fridays between 4:00 PM and 7:00 PM over an 8 week period each semester. Semesters will culminate in a performance opportunity. Students will work together with the ensemble members and faculty coach to choose an appropriate repertoire.

Playing in a chamber ensemble is an invaluable experience for any musician. Students learn the importance of balance, taking leadership to showcase important lines and learning when to play at a softer dynamic to showcase others. Every player is heard, teaching students to take ownership of their parts while listening for the nuances in others. As members of an ensemble, students gain a shared sense of responsibility, becoming better listeners, performers, and musicians as a whole.

 

Pricing Per Person, Per Semester
