Summer Chamber Music

Registration in a Community Music School camp or workshop indicates agreement and understanding of our guidelines

Join Lawrence Community Music School string faculty as you explore the repertoire, techniques, and theoretical aspects of chamber music. 

What is chamber music? Watch the video below for an example!

At camp, each string player is placed into a chamber ensemble, and all camp participants comprise a chamber string orchestra. Chamber ensembles are formed based upon age, experience, and instrumentation to ensure skill-level compatibility. You will receive your chamber ensemble piece roughly three weeks before the camp and will be coached with your ensemble every day.

Summer Chamber Music takes place Monday-Friday afternoons at the Lawrence University Conservatory of Music. Each day includes chamber orchestra, ensemble coaching, hands-on theory, and a movement and rhythm class. The week culminates in a Friday afternoon performance of all chamber ensembles and the chamber orchestra on the Lawrence Memorial Chapel stage. This performance is free and open to the public.
