Winds and Brass Youth Chamber Music Intensive

Program Outline

For motivated students keen to explore the world of chamber music, this program will group students together into small chamber groups based on age, instrumentation and ability. The class will meet each week for six weeks and over the course of the program, students will receive 4 hours of coaching, 2 hours of independent rehearsal, 4 hours of masterclass, where each group will have the opportunity to perform both as a chamber group and soloist (optional), and a final celebratory performance at the Winds & Brass Department Collage Concert.

Groups will be determined in advance of the start date and music will be distributed so students can come prepared to the first coaching.
