Chamber music for all instruments is offered through the Pre-College Chamber Music Program. Directed by Carolyn Warner, the PCCM program offers a comprehensive, exciting and refreshingly-fun approach to the world of chamber music playing.

Accepted participants, once matched with a compatible ensemble, will study and perform great masterpieces from the chamber music repertoire under the guidance of Conservatory and Preparatory faculty teaching artists. Performance in the semester final concerts is required. These concerts will take place on December 14, 2018 at 5pm and May 19, 2019 at 1pm.

Program Details

Coachings generally take place on Fridays between 5:30-7:30pm at CIM's main campus, but can be scheduled on other days according to group and coach availability.
