Youth Chamber Music

Ages 12–18

Designed for intermediate to advanced string players, advanced pianists, and advanced wind players.

Chamber music requires each participant to concentrate and perform independently, while maintaining an awareness of an sensitivity to the other players in the ensemble. Crowden's chamber music program guides serious young musicians in the study and performance of the world's greatest chamber music masterworks.

Rehearsals are scheduled on Tuesday afternoons or Saturday mornings. Each ensemble receives fourteen 90-minute coached rehearsals per semester, the opportunity to perform in an end-of-semester recital, and additional performance and master class opportunities.
