Chamber Music Encounter

COMMUNITY MUSIC SCHOOL 

Chamber Music Encounter Camp Students

Chamber Music Encounter (CME) teaches the skills and repertoire of this wonderful music form where compositions are performed by and written for an instrumental ensemble with one player for each part. Professional chamber musicians and CMS faculty well experienced in chamber group settings will coach trios, quartets, and quintets. An essential ingredient of chamber music is the pleasure of playing together. Guest performers and speakers will share their tips for successful chamber music performance and ensemble development.
