The Chamber Ensemble sessions will offer campers opportunities to study selected repertoire under an instructor’s guidance. Campers will be placed in chamber ensembles according to their playing abilities and age. Campers will be invited to contribute in the group decisions concerning all aspects of performance, including: tempi, dynamics, phrasing, blending, articulation and style.
Playing chamber music promotes collaboration. In Chamber Ensembles students will be encouraged to explore different viewpoints and open-minded receptivity to multiple ways of interpretation as campers co-create a performance. They will be encouraged to learn constructive ways to express ideas and suggestions to peers, and learn to receive feedback from peers in constructive and productive ways.
