Chamber Ensemble Program
In-Residence: The Ensemble da Camera of Washington
[Application form for AYPO Members]

The Chamber Ensemble Program is for talented musicians who participate in one of AYPO's advanced orchestras: the American Youth Symphonic Orchestra (AYSO) or the American Youth Philharmonic (AYP). Ensembles are formed based on the applicant’s video audition, orchestra, and instrument, at the discretion of the artistic and administrative staff. All applicants will be notified by email regarding their acceptance status into the program. The ensemble instrumentation varies depending on repertoire (see below for complete list) that includes a mix of strings, woodwinds, brass, harp, and piano. The program gives musicians the opportunity to enhance their musical development by giving them the chance to study and perform chamber music under the guidance of professional instructors. The acclaimed Ensemble da Camera of Washington (EDCW) is the ensemble in-residence and consists of clarinetist Claire Eichhorn, pianist Anna Balakerskaia, and violinist/violist Ricardo Cyncynates. EDCW coaches each group of student musicians and leads public master classes throughout the season.
