Chamber Music Workshop at Stony Brook
The Community Music Programs at Stony Brook welcomes all adults interested in participating in chamber music ensembles with other local musicians. Amateur and semi-professional musicians seeking musical community will find a supportive environment in which to develop their instrumental, vocal and ensemble skills.
Participants will be placed in compatible chamber music groups and will meet with a coach for five sessions in preparation for a concert scheduled at end of each semester. Groups are carefully assembled according to skill level and experience. The rehearsal location and times are scheduled at the mutual convenience of the coach and participants. In addition to the five coached rehearsals, groups are encouraged to meet and rehearse on their own.
