Chamber Ensemble Program
The Chamber Ensemble Program is for talented musicians who participate in one of AYPO's advanced orchestras, American Youth Symphonic Orchestra (AYSO) or American Youth Philharmonic (AYP). The ensemble instrumentation varies depending on repertoire and participating musicians, including a mix of strings, woodwinds, brass, and piano. Participating musicians pay program tuition which includes music, rehearsal space, coaching sessions, performance in four master classes, performance at the recital, outreach performance opportunities, and admission to The Ensemble's concert. The program gives musicians the opportunity to enhance their musical development by giving them the chance to study and perform chamber ensemble music under the guidance of professional instructors. The acclaimed Ensemble da Camera of Washington is the ensemble in-residence and consists of clarinetist Claire Eichhorn, pianist Anna Balakerskaia, and violinist/violist Ricardo Cyncynates. The Ensemble coaches each group of student musicians and leads public master classes throughout the season, in addition to performing a concert. The student chamber ensembles perform a free recital in the spring.
