Chamber Music Program
Music for the 2020/21 Season!

What is chamber music: Chamber music is a form of classical music composed for a small group of musicians, each with their own part to play. The name comes from centuries ago when small groups of musicians were hired to fit a palace "chamber." It is "the music of friends," and is often described as a "musical conversation," often played just for fun when musicians gather.

Students have the opportunity to register for the Chamber Music Program in August 2020 and in January 2021.
