Chamber music for all ages and instruments is offered through the Friday Night Chamber Music Program (FNCM). Founded by Annie Fullard, and Co-Directed by Annie Fullard and Carolyn Warner, the FNCM 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 Faculty Teaching Artists. Each ensemble will also have the opportunity to participate in a variety of workshops and masterclasses. Performance in the final concert is required!
