The Chamber Music Intensive provides focused ensemble playing for the serious chamber music student. Students will be grouped into a trio, quartet, or quintet and learn an entire work during their time together, culminating in a final concert. Along with rehearsals, students participate in sight-reading chamber music, yoga, stage presence activities, team building, off-campus concerts, master classes, and opportunities for one-on-one instruction. Build connections with fellow musicians not only through collaborative music, but also through icebreakers and field trips. Coaches from the Ed and Mari Edelman Chamber Music Institute will provide instruction along with other chamber music professionals.

Student Requirements

Students need to have the maturity and focus for intensive independent rehearsal and at least an upper intermediate level of playing. Prior chamber music experience is recommended, but not required. The program is open to string instruments (violin, viola, cello, bass) and piano. Non-Colburn students are welcome and encouraged to apply. Pre-formed groups are welcome to apply and will be kept together.

Audition Requirements

Students new to the Ed and Mari Edelman Chamber Music Institute must submit the following:

  • A good quality audition video of two contrasting works showing both technical and lyrical ability
  • A current teacher recommendation 
  • Application form

Current Colburn chamber music students do not need to submit the video, but the application form is still required.

The video audition and application deadline is May 15. Click "Register Now"  to submit your application.
