String Chamber

Some of the greatest music ever written is for small string ensembles. In collaboration with winds and piano, this incredibly beautiful repertoire is explored in weekly-coached rehearsals and three class performances each semester. Emphasis is placed on the ensemble skills of listening, collaborating and leading. Stylistically informed performances are joyously presented. Membership is open to both major and non-major participation. Auditions are held at the beginning of each semester.
