Chamber Music

Instrumental students are eligible, by audition, to participate in the chamber music program. Chamber groups are formed for string players, wind players, brass players, pianists, and guitarists based on skill level and availability. Auditions occur once a year in the fall. All students accepted into the program must enroll for the entire school year and continue to study privately on their individual instruments. Students must also participate in PCM’s Chamber Music recitals.

Please contact the office at 626.683.3355 or music@pasadenaconservatory.org for more information.

PCM is also home to the PCM Chamber Music Competition, one of the largest pre-collegiate chamber music competitions in the country.

Auditions for the 2021–22 school year will be held on Sunday, August 29, 2021, 3:00–6:00 pm. For more information call 626.683.3355.
