Chamber Music

Instrumental students are eligible, by audition, to participate in the chamber music program. Chamber groups are formed for string players and pianists based on skill level and availability. Auditions occur once a year in July. 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.
