WYSO’s Chamber Music Program is designed for members who want to learn more about chamber music and perform in a small group setting. Chamber Music is often called “a conversation among friends” as the repertoire includes specific music written for each instrument. In a good conversation among friends, you can hear each distinct voice and must listen closely to each other. This is also true of chamber music.
Some common types of chamber music groups are:
String quartet (two violins, viola, cello)
Woodwind quintet (flute, oboe, clarinet, bassoon, horn)
Piano trio (violin, cello, piano)
This program is open to WYSO members as well as student musicians in the community. Members in Sinfonietta, Concert, Philharmonia, and Youth Orchestras and their community equivalents are all invited to participate in the WYSO Chamber Music Program. The Chamber Music Program is directed by Karl Lavine.
