Youth Ensemble Participation


THE FALL SESSION IS IN ACTION. 

THE AUDITION DEADLINE FOR WINTER SESSION IS DECEMBER 20TH, 2019.


The Puget Sound region has a rich musical arts community offering a wide range of classical music groups and performances for youth. While there are many opportunities for serious music students to play in larger ensembles and solo festivals, there are few year-round opportunities for them to get the important training and experience that comes from the intimate experience of small chamber ensembles.


The Collaborative Musicians' Project Youth Ensemble Program was formed to provide comprehensive training in all aspects of classical music collaborations for small, mixed ensembles. Here, students will get professional coaching to develop necessary skills such as effective rehearsal communication, blending of tonality and pitch and ensemble balancing. Additionally, they will get experience playing in a variety of ensemble configurations and have exposure to a wide range of classical chamber music. Each session of the program will include two scheduled performances, providing valuable performance experience. Ensemble rehearsals are currently held in Issaquah, WA, and will be expanded to other locations as students enroll in other areas.
