Chamber Project is a six day camp where students get to experience playing in chamber music ensembles, create their own compositions and arrangements, and finally culminates in a performance their works in a one of a kind concert at PONCHO recital hall. Students work one-on-one with Cornish instructors and chamber music professionals to hone their ensemble skills and delve into their creative processes. The week will cover improvisation, interpretation, arranging, communication skills, ensemble rehearsals, leadership skills, sight-reading and more. We'll be diving into what it means to be a classical musician in contemporary times within the chamber music framework.

Who Should Enroll:

Students of 12 to 18 years who are interested in composing and improvisation. No improvisation or composing background necessary! Pre-formed chamber ensembles highly encouraged to apply.

Daily Schedule:

Monday through Friday, 9:00am to 4:00pm with a break for lunch, and a concluding performance at the end of the week in PONCHO Concert Hall on the Cornish campus.
