Junior Chamber Music Workshop

June 17 - 20, 2024
Ages 8-15

If you're a string or woodwind player, join us to have fun learning and rehearsing duets, rounds or quartets (depending on your level and experience). You'll refine your reading skills, learn more about playing music with others, and gain listening and leadership skills. The workshop takes place in the Music Building. It begins with a sight-reading party and ends with a recital in the recital hall.


To reserve an audition time, submit an audition form.

Auditions will be scheduled individually. Be prepared to play two short contrasting pieces and a one to two octave scale. You will also be asked to sight-read a simple piece.

Due to the collaborative nature of preparing chamber music for performance, we require you to attend all rehearsals and the recital. Please check your schedule before auditioning.

The workshop is limited to 12 players. Criteria for acceptance include:

  • Performance level
  • Space in the workshop
  • Availability of compatible group members on complementary instruments

You'll be notified within two weeks of the audition if you're accepted.

Accepted applicants will be emailed a registration link. The total registration cost is $150.

You're expected to pay the balance at that time.

No refunds available for this event.

This is a bespoke event where each group of musicians will be placed together and have music selected specifically for them. As such, cancelations are very disruptive to the event running properly.

Due to this we are unable to offer refunds before or during the workshop after a student has committed and registered.

Please ensure that you can meet all of the time and preparation requirements for the event prior to registration.

Thank you!
