This program, founded in 2015 by Kimberly Ryan, brings together young musicians from around Richmond to play together in new and exciting combinations! Rehearsing and performing in chamber music groups enhances our musicianship and is also really fun! Any student ages 6-18 who has played their instrument for a minimum of one year and can read music at their playing level is encouraged to audition! Students will be placed in small groups with well-matched players and music will be chosen to showcase their talents.
Each week, groups will meet together on Monday evenings to rehearse with their professional chamber music coach for 30 minutes to an hour. We will have a formal recital in May, and additional performance opportunities in service to retirement home communities.
