CHAMBER MUSIC PROGRAM
Faculty Co-Chairs | Dr. Amy-Lin Cheng and Kasia Bielak-Hoops
The Ann Arbor School for the Performing Arts offers a Chamber Music Program for students of all ages and all instruments. Making music in a chamber music ensemble is one of the most rewarding experiences a musician can have. While developing the students’ musicianship and ensemble-performing technique through exploring a variety of composers & music genres, Chamber Music also offers students opportunities to develop many skills essential to Team Work. Such skills include knowing when to lead, when to listen, taking responsibility for one another, constant communication and problem solving collaboratively. The Chamber Music Program will offer intermediate to advanced level musicians a unique opportunity to study chamber music repertoire with the experienced AA-SPA chamber music faculty.
All chamber ensembles receive weekly coaching sessions, master classes, a seminar, and regular performances opportunities throughout the school year at the school, Kerrytown Concert House, the Ann Arbor City Club, and at various private homes.
Orchestra + Chamber Music Combo: Mondays 6:00-7:00pm or 7:00-8:00pm (depending on Youth Orchestra time)
