Chamber Music for All Ages

Christina McGann, coordinator, 615-322-4911

This course offers weekly coaching sessions of small instrumental groups culminating in a final performance. Students are invited to be active participants in the collaborative process, gaining a greater knowledge of ensemble techniques and widening their musical perspective. All ages are encouraged to participate. Scholarship opportunities may be available by audition.

Fall 2019 placement auditions will be held August 18. Please contact Christina McGann to schedule an audition. Alternatively, you may send McGann a three-minute video of you playing your current piece along with a completed copy of the chamber music form. Video must be received by August 17.

Group and coach assignments will be completed by Monday, August 19. Groups are responsible for contacting their coach and scheduling a regular coaching time. Scheduling should take place by August 25. If groups are unable to complete the schedule process by August 25, the coach is not required to make up any missed sessions due to the scheduling delay in scheduling.
