Annual chamber music groups for our Conservatory students

Fee-based chamber music coaching and performance opportunities are open to all students in the Showcase and Ovation Programs. Ensembles will rehearse each week for a predetermined number of weeks. Non-SDYS students are eligible to apply for an additional fee with the submission of a YouTube video for musical evaluation.

Ensembles are formed based on instrumentation and balance. The design of these chamber music ensembles emphasizes small-group learning and musical performances without a conductor. These chamber music ensembles will perform at a year-end recital. Select ensembles may be invited to perform at other community and SDYS events.
