Chamber Music - "a conversation among friends"
Chamber Music is an excellent vehicle for the musical development of young musicians. It has been said the chamber music is a conversation among friends, and having one player to a part means each participant is a soloist and yet part of a greater whole at the same time.
Chamber Music Ensembles
Participating students will be organized into chamber ensembles and will benefit from weekly coached rehearsals.
Rehearsals will take place fortnightly on Sunday afternoons starting at 13:30 at the Stapleford Granary and will be coached by members of the Academy staff on a rotating basis. Guest coaches will be brought in occasionally as well. Ensembles will work toward performing in one of the upcoming Recital & Masterclass Days. In some instances, ensembles may be joined by Academy staff member for their performance.
Chamber music ensembles will be formed at the beginning of each term and will benefit from 5 coached rehearsals with one hour of coaching and 45 minutes of independent rehearsal. Every effort will be made to keep the same ensembles together for the entire school year.
Selection to become a member of an ensemble is by audition for advanced students of level grade 8 + and under 21 years of age.
